A Better Understanding of I have a dream On August 28 1963 Dr Martin Luther King Jr delivered one of the most famous speeches of all time to an audience of more than 200000 civil rights supporters on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial In his I have a dream speech King addressed his encouragement of white and black people working together to achieve racial peace and harmony He especially wanted to teach the young blacks that equality could be gained through the use of non-violence The main reason King used nonviolence was to create a situation so different from the usual that it will open the door to negotiations of desegregation and equal opportunity King also urged African Americans to never forget their dreams and preached that in the eyes of God blacks should be treated as equals because they are as good as any other race The statement that stands out the most to me in Kings speech is I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character In this statement King meant that he wanted to achieve the equality of every race in a place where only the white man was welcome and accepted King had an ideal American dream where there was no prejudice no hate and where everyone was equal King felt it was important for his message to appeal to all people no matter what race they were King also felt it was important for African Americans to love and respect people of all races even though they had been brutally beaten by segregationists The most important aspect of the speech was for all people especially whites and blacks to have respect for one another or else America would remain in segregation
