LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Junior has become a tradition at the Muhammad Ali Center.

On Monday, the "I Have a Dream" speech was played every hour on the hour throughout the day.

Ruthie Oliver has been coming to watch it for several years.

"That 'I Have a Dream' speech means a lot to me because I lived in some of that dream, that did eventually come true," Oliver said.

King first delivered the speech on Aug. 28, 1963, in which he calls for an end to racism in the United States. 

More than 250,000 civil rights supporters witnessed it from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.
