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 dream. It's a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.
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 togerther at the table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state, sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into a oasis of freedom and justice.
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where 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 dream that one day down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of interposition and nullification, one day right 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 dream today.
