They could not stand for the discrimination and they were going fight for justice. The audience that came to hear the speech had the same goal as Dr. King. They want to fight for the Negros. Dr. King’s Talk Card effectively reach the goal he wanted to express.

Martin Luther King Jr. “I Have a Dream” speech was delivered at Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. on August 28, 1963. In hopes of planting the seed of equality into every American’s heart and letting it flourish. King expresses his profound and powerfully emotional thoughts while also mentioning momentous decrees such as the Emancipation Proclamation and Declaration of Independence that were signed by our founding fathers in our nations early history. These documents were intended to unlock the invisible cage that once held African Americans hostage from being treated as equals. Centuries later the Negro community was still riddled by racial injustice and oppression.
(Culp page 30) Both King and Awad believed in trusting in power to heal the world. Awad fighting for Palestinians and Israeli’s to one day come together and share land, King for the right of a black child to sit next to a white child. Awad’s mission to do what very few Palestinians were able to do with reaching their farm lands in the hills of Bethlehem shows the support of the people in allowing them to reach their land to maintain and plant on it. Awad shapes a unique world view on how to love your neighbor. Awad began to learn about nonviolence when he was young; inspired by Martin Luther King Jr, Awad read comic books with stories about Martin Luther King and the Civil Rights Movement in Arabic, even though any nonviolent mediums were prohibited under the Israeli occupation.
Martin Luther King and Malcom X In the late 1950’s and early 1960’s their was ongoing controversy and protests relating to racial segregation and civil rights. Two black men who greatly contributed to the civil rights movement, and were known as the stars were, Martin Luther King and Malcom X. They both wanted rights for the black population but had different beliefs and different ways to go about achieving their goals. Many things contributed to their beliefs on racial segregation and civil rights such as childhood memories, education or religious reasons. Martin Luther King was raised in a middle class home where his parents knew the value of a good education.
The tone and mood of Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X were very different. Whilr King was peacefull and non-violent, X was militant and agressive. Martin Luther King Jr. inspired people by giving them hope as this line from his speech demonstrates “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.”. Malcolm X did the opposite, he wanted his listeners to fight back and inspired them with such quotes as "Join any kind of organization - civic, religious, fraternal, political or otherwise - that's based on lifting ... the black man up and making him master of his own community." Malcolm X's approach to attaining freedom for African Americans was almost impossible.
The "I Have a Dream" speech by Martin Luther King Jr. is one of the most influential speeches ever. Martin Luther used different parts of the English language to enhance the meaning of his speech and bring out the details. The different rhetorical devices, allusions to historic documents, and metaphors seemed to have brought about the emotions that King was trying to arouse in his listeners. This helped him influence his listeners towards wanting equality for all and changing what was happening in the present so they didn't repeat things in the past The very title of his speech was probably taken from his use of anaphora which was present throughout his speech. "I have a dream that one day the nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creedÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ that all men are created equal."
By locating its concern on the issues about morality and violence andexploring the limits of human cruelty Waiting for the Barbarians challenges humanityand imperialism in several ways. Presenting a psychoanalytic discussion of Waiting for the Barbarians this study focuses on the impact of fear in human psyche andimperialism’s self destructive power. How far fear and anxiety can go and how far members of society can follow a blind power is the main concern of this essay. AsCoetzee’s Waiting for the Barbarians is an allegorical novel, this essay will try tointerpret the allegories created in relation to the tensions raised in the novel. The examination of the critiques raised in the book, may be broken down into thefollowing main components.
“…chains of discrimination…” “…great vaults of opportunity…” “…quicksands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood.” The use of metaphors help to emphasise the message that King is trying to push for and helps keep listeners interested and holds their attention. King also uses anaphora quite frequently during the course of his speech. He uses anaphora to keep the momentum of a specific topic he may be discussing such as life of the Negro’s. “One hundred years later…” “I have a dream…” “Let freedom ring…” are all repeated to help remind the audience of the themes he is speaking about. Antithesis has also been used in his speech to reveal the goals he wishes to achieve.
In my opinion, he created a light in the mind of others because his speech was coming out from his heart. Dr. King used the language devices in his speech and created the best speech in American history. He used anaphora, reputation, allusions, and metaphors to engage people and convince them to claim their rights hardly. First, he used many anaphors in his speech “One hundred years later, Now is the time, We must, We can never (cannot) be satisfied, Go back to, Go back to, With this faith, and Let freedom ring (from)” which made the speech stuck in people’s minds. Second, he used the reputation in many forms such as “freedom, we, nation, justice, and dream”.
MARTIN LUTHER KING ANALYSIS In Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech, he uses many different rhetorical strategies. One of the most powerful techniques used is allusion. King points to shared references that are already loaded with built-in emotion, reaching well beyond his words. These allusions all further his purpose of inspiring people to fight against segregation with integrity of character and without violence. For example, King first uses allusion by referring to Abraham Lincoln and how, “Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation.” Mentioning how Lincoln, one of the greatest American Presidents of all time, fought for Negros gives King authoritative appeal in his argument.
