Looks at a speach by
Dr. Martin Luther King Jn.

I Have A Dream


On the 20th August, 1963, nearly a quarter of a million Americans attended the largest demonstration ever held in America to that date, in Washington D.C., to support the Civil Rights of American Negroes.
The following excerpt is from the speech at that gathering by Dr. Martin Luther King Jn.


"

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave-owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood. I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.
I have a dream that my four little children one day will live in a nation where they will not be judged by the colour of their skin, but by the content of their character.
This will be the day when all God's children will be able to sing with new meaning 'Let freedom ring'.

So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire, let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York.
But not only that. Let freedom ring from every hill and molehill in Mississippi, from every mountainside.
When we allow freedom to ring from every town and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, 'Free at last, free at last! Great God Almighty, we are free at last!'

"

Dr. Martin Luther King Junior.
