Check out the collection of Editorial clips used in this video: MLK Has a Dream On August 28, 1963, Martin Luther King Jr. addressed 250,000 people from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to deliver his historic “I Have a Dream” speech — a speech that remains as inspiring and timely as ever today. Jesse Owens Zooms On August 5, Jesse Owens snagged his third gold medal of the 1936 Berlin Olympics, beating his own Olympic world record to finish the 200 meter sprint in 20.7 seconds. He would go on to win a fourth gold medal four days later. The Loss of a Legend The world lost one of its greatest comedians and actors with the passing of Robin Williams on August 11, 2014. The Oscar, Emmy, and Grammy-winning star remains beloved for his wit, charm, and many iconic characters. Woodstock Turns 50 Attracting over 400,000 revelers from August 15-18, 1969, Woodstock remains the most legendary festival ever. Plans for a 50th anniversary redux may have faltered, but the music, the movement, and the love live on. Courts in Session Fresh from the action at Wimbledon, the biggest stars of tennis return to inspire, face off, and compete for fame and glory at the 2019 US Open. Only the best will advance when qualifiers kick off on August 19. Cinema on the Canals Founded in 1932, the Venice International Film Festival is the oldest film festival in the world — and one of the biggest.
