Martin Luther King's “I Have a Dream” Speech
On August 28, 1963, Martin Luther King gave his “I have a dream” speech. His speech was about getting black rights. The document was written for all of America. The reverend stated that “All men are created equal” and that “People shouldn't be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” This was a really important quote in his speech, because it kind of opened the eyes of the government.
He used a lot of repeated parts of other speeches such as “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.” He wrote this speech because he wanted to free all of the black people from America and so that America would become an all-around free nation. Martin Luther King was an inspiration to us all. His dream has come true.
