54 years ago, Martin Luther King Jr. gave one of the most famous and influential speeches in American history. The "I Have a Dream" speech was effective not just for its words, but also for Dr. King's impassioned delivery. It represented the feelings of millions of people fighting for civil liberties. The speech, given by a lesser man in a lesser setting may not have earned the same attention. Dr. King knew if he were to truly help bring about change, he would need a speech and setting that would inspire. The March on Washington and "I Have a Dream" speech caught the attention of a nation, and brought it closer to the much-needed change.
