Martin Luther King's I Have a Dream speech recalled by Cwmbran man

Fifty years after Martin Luther King's historic I Have a Dream speech, a man from Cwmbran has recalled what it was like to be there.

Martin Price, originally from Llanfrechfa, was one of 200,000 civil rights activists who attended the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC on 28 August 1963.

Martin Luther King declared he had a dream of racial tolerance, where people would not be judged by the colour of their skin, but by the content of their character.

It is regarded as a pivotal moment in civil rights history.

Mr Price was 21 and a student at the time and he told Peter Johnson he knew he was part of history.
