Dr. Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" Speech

"I have a dream that one day 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 the character; I have a Dream today!" 

Powerful words that still have meaning to us all today.

Dr. King gave his speech on the footsteps of the Abraham Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC.  Students, he spoke in that spot for a reason.  Can you figure out why?  When we travel to DC in a few months, you will have the opportunity to stand on the exact spot where he gave this powerful speech!

One of the most famous clips from his speech can be found below.  Can you identify what famous document he is quoting at the 14 second mark?

 

Here's the complete text of his speech:
