Washington, D.C.'s Willard InterContinental Hotel at 14th and Pennsylvania Avenues in Northwest played a pivotal part in civil rights history. It was there that Martin Luther King Jr. wrote his timeless "I Have a Dream" speech which galvanized more than 200,000 civil rights marchers at the Lincoln Memorial on Aug. 28, 1963.
