On August 28,1963 more than 2,00,000 people gathered in Washington DC. The gathered took place in Lincoln Memorial where Martin Luther King Jr. delivered the historic speech”I have a dream”. As a result of the gathering and Martin’s speech,Civil Rights Act 1964 came into existence and was passed by the US Congress.
So here are Top 10 best quotes from I have a Dream speech:
In the process of gaining our rightful place,we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds.
Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of brightness and hatred.
And as we walk,we must make the pledge that we shall march ahead. We cannot turn back.
We will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like water and righteousness like a might stream.
We refuse to believe that the bank of Justice is Bankrupt.
I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
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 that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed.
Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation and to the sunlit path of racial justice.
Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty,we are free at last!
