His eye contact stood out to me as well, he wasn’t just reading from a paper he spoke from his heart making his speech even more powerful. A quotation that really inspired me is “I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment. I still have a dream.” I love this quote it shows how strong he was as a person.

Televisions were starting to become more common in American homes. Had he done it before the time of tv and radio it wouldn’t have had the same impact.
