He displays a great amount of pathos, logos, and ethos in his speech. Martin Luther King Jr. displays pathos by targeting the audience’s emotion by talking about his American dream that could also be other peoples too.

This document has always been a source of pride and hope for Americans, as in the beginning, it was used to separate from a tyrannical, oppressive leader, and even today, Americans celebrate its publishing every Fourth of July. Lincoln alludes to this document in order to justify his condemnation of slavery, as slavery contradicts the founding fathers’ message of equality. He also implies that his opposition, the Confederacy, is similarly oppressive in its
President Lincoln had issued the emancipation proclamation declaring "all persons healed as a slave within any state, the people where of shall be in rebellion against the U.S., shall be then , thence forward and forever free." He countermands a general 's order to free slaves of owners resisting the U.S. and he ensured the passage of the 13th amendment
King effectively uses what the people are most passionate about to create a change in racism and segregation. On August 28, 1963, history was made when Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered an inspirational speech that caused a change in the direction of the Civil Rights Movement. He was speaking out to confront the issues of racism in our nation, and skillfully used rhetorical devices to help him achieve his goal.

Martin Luther King Jr. has made a great impact on our lives, he helped change the law so Negroes could vote, and he was a great leader to all African American and citizens. He had a vision of how there was no racism in the community and how people are allowed to live their lives freely. I now know how easy life is today than in 1960 because of the way people treat each other.
It is here where King gave his most memorable speech known as the “I Have a Dream” speech. This speech was based off King’s yearning for equality and peace in America. He did an excellent job in painting a mental picture for every individual present of what he believed would become the future society in the United States. This day had an enormous part in the passage of the Civil Rights of 1964. A year later King helped lead another campaign that forced Congress the Voting Rights Act, which guaranteed everyone in the Untied States a right to
This feature was reflected in movements like abolition, prison reform, and the women’s rights movement. In 1829, David Walker, a free black man, wrote to all other freed black men that they needed to help their brothers who were enslaved. He wrote this to persuade them to do everything in their power to help them gain the freedom that they experience. He even goes as far as to mention the wretchedness of white christians thus suggesting a more radical approach to abolitionism. (Document 3).
The Abolitionist Movement was a movement that was against slavery. The Abolitionist Movement is trying to address the problem which is that slavery needs to end immediately and give freedom to all the slaves. To do this, the public's opinion must change about slavery. People thought slavery was okay. In the 1800s, there were about 893,602 slaves in the United States.
The tone of this literary art is produced in the opening stanza “I, too, sing America” (1). The narrator is proclaiming his right to be patriotic to America as well as a sense of hope, “Tomorrow, / I’ll be at the table/ When company comes.” (8-10). The poem reflects Hughes’s dream that one-day segregation will cease and when that day happens, all men will sit together equally and enjoy the same opportunities.
In the profound speech, "I have a dream" by Martin Luther King Jr. there is a quote from the book of Amos. Amos 5:24 says, "But let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream." At that time in history, the blacks were still being discriminated against 100 years after the Civil War had occurred. King makes it clear in his speech that all men are created equal and all men should be treated justly.
President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863. The Proclamation declared that all slaves would be free within the states. Slavery was not completely abolished in the North. The Proclamation gave the war a moral purpose by turning the struggle into a figure to free the slaves. With all social and economic problems with the 3rd bloody President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863.
Both lincoln’s Gettysburg Address and Martin Luther King's “I have a dream” speech are similar in that they both express the concept of freedom to achieve their purpose. However, they each have different ideas about freedom, and about what they want their audience to do. Both influential speeches rely heavily on rhetorical devices to convey their purpose. In King’s speech, the use of sensory and visceral language is abundant, creating an emotional and powerful atmosphere. “Manacles of discrimination,” “Lonely island of poverty” and “Chains of discrimination” paint a bleak picture of life as a minority in America, and contrasts phrases such as “Bright day of justice” and “Sacred obligation” which symbolize freedom.
COLLAPSE Dr.King was a real king, especially when he stand among 200,000 African-American to announce the ''I Have A Dream speech. The way Dr. King Incorporate pathos in his famous speech is by putting a lot of emotions in his speech while he was announcing it in front of everyone. The way Dr. King kept say ''I Have A Dream'' The people who were standing among him felt all the strength king had in his speech. Dr. King also showed in his speech how he did not like the way they treated
Throughout the speech, another scheme King uses frequently is parallelism, the strategy of repeating similar clauses, several times. Parallelism is useful to emphasize things and ideas to the audience, which, like all the other tropes and schemes. Early in his speech, King writes “riches of freedom” and “security of justice” and then “justice rolls down like waters” and “righteousness like a mighty stream.” In these two examples, King is using parallelism to express that the African American wants justice and freedom by repeating them next to each other and mentally connecting them in the reader’s mind, which is also connected with pathos as the terms King uses subtly emphasize those words and create good feelings in the reader.
