August 28, 1963--Sala Udin stood amongst the crowd in the sweltering August sun, waiting for Martin Luther King Jr. to take the podium at the March on Washington. Little did he know that he would soon witness one of the most iconic speeches in the history of the United States. King's 'I Have a Dream' speech instantly resonated with Udin.
"That speech is what made me say, 'I want to join his army. I want to be with him.'" That, Udin says, is when he knew he become a Freedom Fighter at the height of the Civil Rights dispute.
