It impacted us in a very good way. Kings speech was to hope that black and whites could live amongst each other on peace, and for every American to have the same amount of equal rights The Pound Cake Speech was given by Bill Cosby in May 2004, at an event to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision. The speech was a very interesting speech. Not just because of the topic of the speech, but because of how he presented it. For the most part it was him expressing his feeling and telling stories of how the young black people were wasting their lives and not actually bothering to learn how to be real people or learn how to speak properly.
Rhetorical Analysis: Martin Luther King Jr an educated christan who left the crowd astonished after his speech. His goal was to abolish slavery and have whites and blacks in the same place with no hostility, to live in peace for as long as people are on this earth. His dream took flight after that astonishing speech. He encouraged blacks to protest but without violence. That day marked a note in the history books and is now taught today.
Martin Luther King spoke over 2,500 times and led marches and nonviolent demonstrations for black people to vote, desegregation, labor and other basic civil rights for all. In his famous speech “ I have a dream” he shared his vision of equal rights all around the world. In his later days He kept fighting for what he believed in even after being threatened constantly, arrested, and having his house bombed. He kept fighting for human rights up to April 4th 1968, when he was assassinated on his hotel balcony. Martin Luther King has become an inspiration to many around the world; he is the global citizen of the
This inspires us in many ways. In addition, his accomplishment erases all the stereotypes for black people to have the excuse of “The white man wouldn’t let me”. Even today in his 2nd term in office, Barack has experienced the extreme racism and criticism of maybe any black political and social leader. What inspires me most about Barack Obama is even through all that, he still keeps faith in God and in his country that one day we could all live in peace as citizens and brothers. I attend Raymore-Peculiar high school where I am a junior.
Yet the riders still kept moving. “We silently formed a circle, and joining hands, we sang “WE’LL NEVER TURN BACK” very slow and very solemnly” (McAdam, 72) To have the strength and willpower to just keep moving forward when everything is against you is something that nobody can take away from you. Freedom Summer was extremely important to the Civil Rights Movement because not only were unregistered black voters encouraged to register, but the persecution of black voters in the south was brought to the attention of the media. This in turn brought attention all over the United State and the world. The movement helped destroy the Jim Crow Laws and gained momentum for a further movement.
Zoe McClure “I Have a Dream” speech critique Public Speaking 108-66 Instructor Gil Stern I have a dream, by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, became an inspiration and incentive of hope for all African Americans. Much of the greatness of this speech is tied to its historical context. In his speech, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on August 28, 1963, Dr. King expresses his frustration that after a hundred years since the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation, African Americans are still treated as inferior citizens. However, he also expresses his hope that this will change and African Americans will be "free at last." He makes use of rhetorical devices to convey his message that "all men are created equal" and that racism should not, cannot, continue if the nation is to prosper.
We all live here, we’re all taking part of the community, going to school together and even grocery shopping together. We all take and take from what America has to offer and we can’t spare 30 seconds with our right hands over our hearts reciting words that we memorized in 1st grade? The simple truth is that you live in America and that’s all it takes to to respect to it. About 12 million troops have died for our country and that number will continue to rise, as our war with Iraq continues to go on. The Pledge of Allegiance was written with a strong meaning that Americans, like us understand.

Another subject he spoke about was the National Negro Business League, which was formed 1915. The organization was formed to promote financial and commercial welfare of blacks.
In ’56 King was arrested on charges of controlling operational buses illegally without a cause. After all he went through, I would have to respect him greatly for what he did because this didn’t stop him from reaching his goal. In the year 1958, he published a book called “Stride Toward Freedom: The Montgomery Story” which told many of such goals he was striving or reaching for. Later in 1960, King moved to Atlanta and became a co-pastor and soon led a march
Racism is a huge problem for the society because it judges people on the basis of the way they look or assumptions that they might make about people from different cultures. Martin was a smart student graduating from his school to more house College at the age of fifteen.
