Washington and W.E.B. Du Bois. Prior to the riot, African Americans had listened to Washington’s advice. Washington believed that African Americans should be sublevel to whites and focus all their time working diligently and progressing in blue-collar society. This would allow whites to feel supreme, but also allow African Americans to make something of themselves and provide for their families.
There weren’t just blacks, but whites came to hear his speech too. By now Martin Luther King Jr.’s speech is having an impact. In Martin Luther King Jr.’s speech “I Have A Dream” the theme that if everyone is unified to speak up for equality, the results can bring them to freedom, hope, and racial equality which is revealed in this speech through repetition, allusion, and imagery. The poetic device repetition is used to show that freedom will come, if they are unified. King uses repetition to express that freedom still hasn’t appeared in a long time, for this to happen they must act now.
Alfred M. Green then gave an inspiring speech calling all African Americans to unite and campaign against the injustices their forefathers underwent. Utilizing ethos, pathos, logos, and kairos, Green created a well rounded and effective argument for inspiring African Americans to serve in the Union ranks. By using ethos and pathos, Green crafted a persuasive argument that
This type of movement is related to redefine of all government roles that are related to black civil. The words civil right is often related to the image of Martin Luther King and his speech “I Have a Dream” (Karson, 2005). Main question: This paper tries to focus on the cause behind the civil rights movement. Focusing on goals of the movement.
The speech I chose is “I Have a Dream” by Dr. Martin Luther King. It is a historic speech. It took place in Washington on August, 23rd,1968, where a tremendous crowd marched to call for justice and the freedom of Negro. The freedom that they did not have even after signing the Emancipation Proclamation by the American president Abraham Lincoln. In his speech, Dr. king talked about his dream, the dream of Negro: to live equal to the white in America and to see their children treated equally to the white children.
The leader whose methods were most effective during the civil rights movement was Martin Luther King Jr. His main goal during the civil rights movement was to have the whites and the blacks all come together to form equality. He fought for this equality through a nonviolent approach, which granted him respect from different races all over the world. Nonviolence also allowed the African Americans to achieve their goal. Nonviolent marches, sit-ins, and protests all had a huge impact in having Kennedy making a civil rights bill. This strategy would lead to creating peace and having all Americans live in harmony.
11. According to king, what hardships do African Americans face? Give two examples from the speech. One of the hardships that African Americans face is segregation and discrimination. Another hardship that we face is racial injustice.
In Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s speech, “I Have a Dream,” given at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. on August 28, 1963, he spoke to gain equality for black men, women, and children in the United States of America. It is as if he came to the same realization that his feminist predecessor, Jane Addams, had come to. She had once said, “The good we secure for ourselves is precarious and uncertain until it is secured for all of us and incorporated into our common life” (Bellecci, 2004, p. 39). Martin Luther King knew that he had freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution, but he was not getting them in the same way that his white countrymen were getting them and he was willing to do whatever he could to be considered a true, equal American citizen. However, unlike the likes of other black revolutionaries of the time, such as Malcolm X, MLK was an advocate of peaceful protests even as the white people broke out with violence towards the African American community with every step they took in the war for equality.
People need inspiration in order to believe in their own power sand abilities, they should take responsibility for the great changes that this world needs. Analyzing the history of inspirational speeches, it appears that no changes were made without a great speaker that inspires his/her followers to participate in the changing this world to be better. Imagine the United States if Martin Luther King Jr. was not a skilled narrator and his famous “I Have A Dream” remained unheard. This would result in extending the duration on the suffering of the black population as he managed to inspire millions of slaves and abused black people all over the world, he ignites a sparkle of hope for a better future. These words can describe each great speaker
These people have a passion for what they are protesting for, and the fight for rights will never die off until the black people of America have the equal rights and respect as a white man. Just like king said, “And there will be neither rest nor tranquility in America until the negro is granted his citizenship rights.” The way he states his idea of unrest of the nation till rights are granted really puts an urgency into his ideas, and makes them seem as they are, which is the most important issue in the nation. This idea also develops his central idea in a deep way that says he wants everlasting equality, and there will be an everlasting fight until rights are granted. This really persuades his audience to realize that his idea he is putting in the reader 's head is really the best choice for the nation, and says that America will continue to be fair and equal, because there will be nothing unjust or unfair to fight about. He really supports this idea using rhetorical devices to further strengthen the central idea as a whole.
