Martin Luther King presents: a dream to never forgetLincoln Memorial, Washington D.C. , 28th of August 1967.
Martin Luther King enters the stage in front of the impressing building. Hundreds and hundreds of people gathered together to spectate the possible most influential speech in the history of the racial conflict that endures for hundreds of years. The people who were present yesterday came from all over America, many traveled hours and hours, but they accounted, possibly, a gigantic breakthrough in the ongoing conflict between white and black. As he stood there, in front of his people, he was the king almighty. What Martin Luther King did yesterday can hardly be described in words. For 17 minutes long, he persuaded and convinced his audience about the far-reaching problem that had the black community in its constraint.
The the feeling of intimacy and warm fellowship created an enchanting atmosphere in which the black community stood up against the imperial white supremacy, who got the absolute power over the last era’s in the USA. Now is our time. We, together should stand up against those people who look at us like we are less, less than any other human being who has a lighter tone of skin.
King is born on January 15, made career as an American Baptist minister and activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the Civil Rights Movement. He is best known for his role in the advancement of civil rights using the tactics of passive aggressive reasoning and civil disobedience based on his Christian beliefs and inspired by the nonviolent activism of Mahatma Gandhi. King, representing the SCLC, was yesterday among the leaders of the “Big Six” civil rights organizations who were instrumental in the organization of the March on Washington for jobs and freedom. The march gained national attention throughout television programs, but when standing between the approximated 250,000 united people who came together, it felt like the whole state of Washington had gathered to fight for the rights of the human race.
Highly remarkable was the fact of the many white citizens, they presented their solidarity with the suppressed black community out in the open, they were proud of it. They wanted to say that this couldn’t proceed any longer. The problem, that also inflicted them as a part of our society, should be removed from their modernized country. The obstacle on the road to equality have to be removed, and they are willing to cooperate in that process.
As the first ceremony of such magnitude ever initiated and dominated by African Americans, the march also was the first to have its nature wholly misperceived in advance.
