(CNN) -- President Barack Obama on Wednesday praised the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and other civil rights leaders, saying: "Because they kept marching, America changed. Because they marched, the civil rights law passed ... a voting rights law was signed. ... And yes, the White House changed." Obama spoke on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington on the 50th anniversary of King's "I Have a Dream" speech.
