2 weeks ago my dad was around and we watched “The Help” movie together. For you who havent watch the movie yet, the synopsis is about a racism and social classes between black peoples and white peoples. Anyway, after we finished the movie my dad told me about a speech from Martin Luther King that gave a voice about racism .
A part of the speech that I find interesting,
“ 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 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 desert state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice. I have a dream that my four 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. I have a dream today … ”
This known as ” I Have A Dream ” speech. This iconic speech became the light of every black or negro slaves in america. King hopes to obtain equality through a nonviolent movement. He knows that violence to obtain peace only leads to an endless cycle of fighting and cruelty that might takes a victim or unecessary death. As we can see now, his dream might haven’t fully come true but this is such a revelation to many.
