Honolulu − Today, Wednesday, August 28, 2013, at 3:00 p.m., the City and County of Honolulu will recognize the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech by ringing the Aloha Liberty Bell Replica in front of The Mission Memorial Building at 550 South King Street.
