Dreams Come True ..The American Gandhi

On August 28, 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered one of the most famous speeches of all time to an audience of more than 200,000 civil rights supporters on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. In his, "I have a dream" speech, King addressed his encouragement of white and black people working together to achieve racial peace and harmony. He especially wanted to teach the young blacks that equality could be gained through the use of non-violence. The main reason King used nonviolence was to create a situation so different from the usual, that it will open the door to negotiations of desegregation and equal opportunity. King also urged African Americans to never forget their dreams and preached that in the eyes of God, blacks should be treated as equals because they are as good as any other race. The statement that stands out the most to me in King's speech is, "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." In this statement, King meant that he wanted to achieve the equality of every race in a place where only the white man was welcome and accepted. King had

He tried to include all black people from all over the country in his dream of change. King felt it was important for his message to appeal to all people no matter what race they were. " King wanted the people to keep the faith that one day they will be free to work, struggle, pray, and live together. King wanted to achieve equality for his people by using non-violent methods. There had been insufficient funds for equal education, equal employment, equal housing, and equal participation in every aspect of American life. felt the same as many other African Americans, hoping that someday all the racism will disappear and the people doing the racism will realize that everyone should get a chance at being treated equally. "All of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics. His wisdom, words, actions, commitment, and dreams for social change, delivered in his speech, has made him one of the most inspirational people of all time. He said that the African Americans weren't free and weren't treated equal, as he thought they should be. And when the black man tried to cash in his check at the bank of justice, it had been returned and marked, insufficient funds. "Go back to Mississippi, go back to Alabama, go back to South Carolina, go back to Georgia, go back to Louisiana, go back to the slums and ghettos of our northern cities, knowing that somehow this situation can and will be changed. an ideal American dream where there was no prejudice, no hate, and where everyone was equal. In conclusion, Martin Luther King's speech, "I have a dream," inspired many black and white listeners who were present in Washington and who were watching in on T.
