Also, King has made a tremendous impact on the future of equality for all. Largely his most iconic speech was that of his 1963 speech, I Have a Dream (A&E Networks Television).

Of all the songwriters in the history of popular music, no artist has left a bigger impact than Bob Dylan. With beautifully crafted lyrics that require deep scrutiny and analysis in order to be understood, Dylan pushed the boundaries of songwriting and made people think differently about the world they lived in. Right from the beginning with his first album recorded in 1962, Dylan refused to go along with the simple songwriting that was popular at the time. He said what he wanted and was not afraid of what people would think. If anything, he was assertive, in a way telling people that they should listen to what he had to say, and that those who criticized were not looking hard enough at the song.
From a young age, Dylan had an interest in music and was driven by several entertainment icons such as Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis. This led him to dropout of college to focus full-time on what he loved to do most: creating music. As Dylan reached his 20s, he started to produce a wide collection of songs at a very fast pace. In fact, many of these songs written during this time are presented in the album, The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan. Through the use of traditional music and meaningful lyrics, Dylan creates an album that exemplifies both protest and sorrow.
