It has been 50 years since the famous words, "I have a dream," were spoken. Those words continue to resonate across the country, around the world and here in Toledo.

Hundreds took part in Monday's "Day of Unity" celebration at the University of Toledo.

The theme of this year's celebration was "Defending the Dream."

Toledo Mayor Michael Collins, NAACP President Ray Woods, Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur, and UT President Lloyd Jacobs spoke at the event.
