Martin Luther King's I Have A Dream Speech

"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 down together at the table of brotherhood."

This quote comes from the famous Martin Luther King's speech "I have a dream", dramatically delivered from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. It was a defining moment of the American Civil Rights Movement and is considered to be one of the best speeches ever given, where the key message is that all people are created equal and, although not the case in America at the time, King felt it must be the case for the future.
