I Have A Dream
by: Martin Luther King
Martin Luther King's "I Have A Dream" talks about the injustice and discrimination towards the Negros. Even though the Emancipation Declaration has been signed five years ago (in time the speech was presented), the Negros still continue to be looked down upon by the "white" Americans because of their ethnicity or of their past. King's "dream" in the title refers to the long-due acceptance of the white Americans towards the Negros. His great hope is that everyone will accept the Negros as equal and treat them as humane individuals as they are like everyone else.
Why is it that until today, there is discrimination against the negro or the black Americans?
