August 28, 1963
“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
the sons of former slaves
and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at a
table of brotherhood. Georgia
I have a dream that one day even the state of
a state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and weltering with the heat of
oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice. Mississippi
I have a dream that my four little 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.”
