I HAVE A DREAM SPEECH TEXT

January 17, 2011 by Post Team 

I HAVE A DREAM SPEECH TEXT, Today marks the 25th anniversary commemoration of the nation’s birthday Rev. Martin Luther King a national holiday. At a time when violence has attracted the attention of the nation on the rancorous nature of political discourse, we remember the most famous prayer of a man who has brought change through peace. This is the text of the “I Have a Dream” speech, delivered on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington August 28, 1963.

I am pleased to join you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.

One hundred years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a beacon of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of captivity.
Let us not wallow in the valley of despair, I say to you today, my friends.

And even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “. We hold these truths to be self evident: that all men are created equal”

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the son of former slaves and the son of former slave owners will sit down together at the table of brotherhood.
His dream for our nation always inspiring. MLK read words:

Just over half of his speech, Martin Luther King began to say “I Have a Dream” speech delivered on his behalf.

“I say to you today, my friends, even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all men are created equal”

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the son of former slaves and the son of former slave owners will sit down together at the table of brotherhood.
