Let Freedom Ring
Summary Of Doctor King's Speech
In chunk A , Dr.King expressed that “although the great american who is a symbolic figure to our nation signed the Emancipation proclamation , African Americans still suffer from segregation.” As a hundred years goes by continuously ,the African american race continues to suffer for instance living in poverty and being languished by the american society. Basically Dr.King believed that no matter what laws are passed ,African Americans are still treated like the underdog of society. In chunk B, Dr.King is basically saying that we still struggle with our dignity and discipline. He also believes that we shouldn't allow our protest to result in violence. We also should not lead to distrusting the white race because a lot of them have now realized that we both seek the same destiny.He is stating that “ we cannot be satisfied if our basic residency is from a small ghetto home to a larger one and we cannot be satisfied if our mobility is only allowed to lodge motels.” Dr.King explains that we are being robbed of our dignity if everything state's “WHITE ONLY.” In chunk C, Martin Luther King states ,that “his dream is that we all will rise up and realize that we are equal.He dreams that sons of slaves and slave owners could sit in a room with each other without complaint.” Basically he believes that we are equal and he hopes that everyone else can envision this dream and make it possible.In chuck D, he is stating that we should “ let freedom ring in every place.” He is saying that we will reach that day when people of all races and ethnicity will join hands and rejoice their long journey of reaching freedoms that no matter what laws are passed ,African Americans are still treated like the underdog of society. Dr.Kings purpose was to bring people together and express that they could make his dream possible. He believed that we were all equal and that violence was unnecessary.
"But 100 years later the Negro still is not free." I chose this quote because it mainly expresses Dr.King's purpose in chunk A. This basically shows that African Americans still are not free no matter what. I chose this picture because it connects to the quote and helps support Dr.King's claim. African American's are not considered to have American rights due to the pigment of their skin.
"We can never be satisfied as long as the Negro is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality." I chose this quote because it supports the idea and statement that in most cases police brutality happens to mainly African Americans which is unruly. This picture is visual evidence of an African American male being attacked by an officer.
"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." I chose this quote because it supports the overall purpose of this speech which is to be able to be around someone of a different color or race without conflict or judgement. I chose this image because it shows that African Americans were restricted from doing a lot due to the color of their skin.
