I have a dream !
« I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeplyrooted 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 beself-evident : that all men are created equal.”
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slaveowners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heatof injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.
I have a dream that my four little children willone day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. I have a dream today!
I have a dreamthat one day down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of interposition and nullification; one dayright down in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.
I have a dreamtoday.
I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain and thecrooked places will be made straight and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together. »
Martin Luther King. On August the 28, 1963.
