In his speech Martin Luther King talked about the lives of the Negro people in times of slavery, he talked about how for years American black people fought for their freedom and still 100 years after, they’re still the same. What I like most about his speech was that he was so convinced that his speech was gonna be something that marked the history of our nation; he was so convinced that he’s work will succeed and year’s later the slavery will not exist, and every American citizen will be treated the same. He believed in a world with happiness and freedom for everyone, and that’s what he left. Yes currently we still fight for freedom, for equality, for respect, maybe not always for the Negro people but for everyone. We’re still fighting once we accept the justice service it’s corrupt.

For me the most important part of the speech is the part when he said "I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal". This is the most important part for me because he calls for equal rights but making reference to the constitution. The U.S. was created under the ideology that every men was equal so why were black people not treated equal? Also, this part is important because he did not disown his country, he just wanted to be treated as any other American.

People should be judged based on there actions and characteristics not based on their color” this means that people in our country should be judged on what they do and not how they look, this is important because some people in America will not let people do certain things if they are not good looking or are not like them.

"I have a dream that one day down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of interposition and nullification - one day right there in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers." I think that this quote is important because one day MLK Jr. believes that the blacks and whites will join hands and get along in the future. He thinks that there won't be any more racist events towards each other as well.

In Martin Luther King Jr's speech, "I Have a Dream", speaks out about racial discrimination in America. The most important line spoken is "Judge a man not by the color of his skin, but by the content of his character". This line is not directed to a specific party but is the call of action to all Americans. In doing so allows for the progression of a better society. One of which reflects one's character rather than one based upon what is seen on the outside.

"One hundred years later, the Negro is still languished in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land." I feel like this is the most important quote in the speech because it identifies all of the problems of racism. King includes this because he wants to make it clear that they are Americans. The white people brought slaves over to the United States and now that they are being born in that same land they too are Americans. King later states how everyone is equal according to the Declaration of Independence. This helps reinforce his idea that black people are Americans as well. When he says "languished" he wants to tell the people that the blacks are still very weak when they should not be. For someone that was born in America they should not have to grow up in a society where they are restricted from everything or that they have to work their entire lives not being able to do what they dream of doing. In relation to the speech this is the sentence that identifies the problem that King wished to eliminate with the speech. By directly stating what is wrong with the society he lives in. He targets almost everyone in America and hopes that they will listen and agree that racism should be no more. When he repeats "one hundred years later" he wants to make it clear that this problem has persisted for so long and, by now, should be gone. With this sentence he wants people to realize that one hundred years later an old problem persist and should be done with.

In Martin Luther King Jr’s “I Have a Dream Speech” I found the part about colored and whites joining together in the future to be the most memorable. This part was most important because it seemed like such a far reach at the time for people of different backgrounds to come together. The segregation MLK described in some states seemed unimaginable. You can see the change that’s occurred in the world since this speech was given. The speech has given people the push they needed to accept one another as equals. Although it took many years and a lot of cooperation, but MLK’s dream has become a reality.

I think the most important part is when Dr.King states, “Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.” This is the most important part because he explains how although we should fight for freedom, we should not do it with hate. We should not fight hate with hate since it is hypocritical. It was important for Dr.King to state that since many would express their anger in hate.

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." I believe that this quote that Dr. King mentioned was very important because not only can it relate to the situation of racism, but also in other real life events. I think this quote is a call to change our hearts and minds in regards to diversity and change. There will always be some change in life that we will not always accept but eventually we will have to get over it and be the bigger person. Violence is not the answer and keeping everything on negative terms does not bring peace. In this case, it is racism and African Americans fighting for their freedom and respect that they deserve for they are not harmless but it is the color of their skin. The kindness of our hearts make the change and that is why light and love can only do that. All in all, this is important for myself and my country because we have overcome the tragedies and bring peace for negativity and hatred brings calamity.

My favorite part of the speech was when Martin Luther King Jr. asked the crowd in his speech, “when will you be satisfied?”. He then began to explain that the people will be satisfied when there is no more burden in the black people, no more segregation and when black people feel that they have their god given rights. That was my favorite part because Martin Lither King Jr. explains why he is having this speech/protest because black people are still living separated and with out their god given rights.

“America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check that has come back marked ‘insufficient funds.’” I found this quote important because it shows how poorly African Americans were treated even though slavery was abolished and there were laws that would make everyone equal. I feel like when Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said “America has given the Negro people a bad check,” that shows that some things were implemented to give African Americans more rights, but they were still being treated less than. Just like what happened with the Plessy v. Ferguson case in 1896. African Americans should have been treated equal, even though there was extreme segregation.

A quote from Dr. King's speech, "I Have a Dream", that I found most important was "But 100 years later, the Negro still is not free. One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by. . . the chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity.. . ". I believe this part of his speech was very important because It still relates to circumstances in today. Dr. King refer to blacks still not being free from slavery, today they are still not free from discrimination, racism, police brutality, and poverty. There are still frequent cases of police brutality against the black community. Private prisons profit off of incarcerating many young and undeserving black men. Urban areas are filled with a predominantly black population with the no help from local governments to reduce poverty and improve living conditions. We have come along way since slavery but are no where near finish fighting.

That they may have transportation and other basic needs. It is important because it reveals all the suffering and violence they face.

‘... America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked “insufficient funds.” But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation.’ King discusses how those of color are not capable of receiving freedom and security due to the ideals of the United States at the time, but trying to prove how this belief is false as it is possible and right to do. I find this quote most important as I strongly believe that people are capable of what they put their mind to as long as they try and prove it. I believe everything is an illusion of telling people what they are limited to do like the “insufficient funds” that is told to those of color.

" In the process of gaining our rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. " I believe this is the most important part of Dr. Kings speech because it displays the tone of the speech. Dr. King was never condemning of white people in his speech he spoke how great the future could be. He also talked about how a person should not be judged because of the color of their skin ,but rather the content of their character. This is very important because the black community was excluded because of their skin color and preconceived notions about them. If character was the standards for which people were judged in society the black community would trump over the white ,but he states to maintain their moral standards and to not be engulfed by rage. To me this is what is so inspiring about Dr. Kings speech he doesn't throw a pity party and complain about all the injustice, but rather, he fights for what is righteous and remains peaceful. He even claims to posses forgiveness for the black communities biggest enemies. He preached the same ethics written to Britain to gain freedom. Everyone is created equal and with unalienable rights given from the creator.

"America has given the Negro people a bad check a check which has come back marked insufficient funds.” America has promised equality and they are following the documents of America but the white people are putting their own twist to it. Instead of integrating the people they are separating them and giving them similar things. They’re separated but they both still have water fountains. The “check” isn’t being satisfied with what is needed or wanted. They want to stop segregation and discrimination so the white people are giving them water fountains and bathrooms only black people can use but that’s not what they’re asking for. I think this is most important because it explains the black people’s point of view on what’s happening and how the white people are twisting the documents words around in their favor.

What I think one of the most important of Dr. King's speech is let freedom ring. And when this happens, and when we allow freedom ring - when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children - black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics - will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual: "Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!" What Martin Luther King Jr is saying that it is not the end of the world for America between black men and white men, there is hope for people they can be free if white men and black men can stick together and sing along with each other it is the most inspiring and encouraging for what Black men and White men would for the world that we can be live free and stay free for what is America for black and white men.

“I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream.” In the 1960's, civil rights were pre-determined by what was supposed by the superior race, white Americans. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. overlooked these differences that were believed to be significant for their segregation. He despite being heavily opposed by the south and rejected for his beliefs, decided to go on and fight for what he believed in. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. did not give up on his people and what he believed in no matter how much it fueled up his opponents. He was a strong believer in demonstrations (Non Violent Protest) but it almost always had an outcome of violence from the opposers. No matter how tough it got for him and his followers, he never gave up.

The part of the speech that was the most important is on paragraph nine, where he discouraged the use of violence. Dr. King assured that they must obtain their goals without resorting to violence. This is the most important part of the speech because it portrayed his true nature and desire to obtain what was rightfully theirs without harming others or being pushed to the extremes of using violence. This was very significant because athough many of them were faced with violence and threats, he was determined to continue to fight without ever using violence, making his ideas and actions stronger and demonstrating his determination and that of others to gain freedom through the right path. This is important to my country because it is the perfect example of how resorting to vioelence is never the answer, and that one can achieve what they want without harming others.

This is very impactful to me because regardless of all the horrible things that the KKK did against Dr. King and other black people he was still able to forgive them and that just goes to show how special of a man Dr. King was.

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 thecontent of their character. This quote means so much importance to the whole speech as it contains and wraps up how in his time their was so much segregation and so many families were torn apart by this unlawful actions represented at the time and using so much compassion in this part it draws to the audiences side of emotion using pathos to connect to others having siblings or children that wouldn’t want to seem them struggling in life due to racism.

In the speech “I Have a Dream”, Martin Luther King discusses his wants of civil and economic rights including the end to racism. My favorite quote was, “Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate desegregation to the sunlit path of racial justice”. This caught my attention because I believe it is important to have justice for freedom and equality. Separation between Negros and Whites was not right nor was it fair. Martin Luther King wanted there to be equal rights for Negros just as there were for Whites. In addition, he was hoping for justice to be shown by all racial differences. He was tired of the segregation going on in America and simply wanted an end to racial segregation, prejudice, and injustice to make a great nation.

I think an important part of Dr. King's speech was when he says, "And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead. We cannot turn back." Dr. King emphasizes how as a society we should always move forward and promise to never turn back. I feel that it's an important part of the speech because promising to move forward and never looking back shows progress within society, whether it be good or bad.

Dr. King stated that, “...one day little black boys and little black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.” Personally, I think this is the most important part of the speech that defined the Civil Rights Movement. King states that everyone should be equal and that colored people should join hands as brother and sisters. This is important to me because racial equality is important, without the important events that happened between 1954-1968 America would be completely different. It is important for people to know the hardships that led us up to where we are. As of right now, we have come a long way for racial equality ever since this speech has been released. Kings, “I Have a Dream Speech” is an important event in United States history and completely changed how we think about racial equality.

The part that I found to be the most important in Martin Luther King's speech "I Have A Dream" was, "let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline." This shows King's way of taking things as he stays true to his ideal that violence it's not the way to go despite the situation. After all the black people went through, dealing with segregation and racism, King always encouraged his followers to never choose violence as a way to solve problems but to choose peace. His beliefs were stronger and were followed by many people because he would constantly resort into peace something that everyone admired from him.

Martin Luther King brings up many interesting topics and uses a plethora of allusions to showcase what little rights black people had at the time, and how he wishes for blacks and whites to be on equal terms. King has many interesting things to say, however, there were a few key points from his speech that were outliers. The most important line that he states in his speech is "One hundred years later, the Negro is still languished in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land." I believe this is the most important and captivating line in his speech for a few reasons. The first reason is that it highlights the history of African Americans, and how they essentially built America. Another reason is that it also highlights the fact that they are not just Africans, they are African AMERICANS. It also showcases the interesting allusion that king is trying to make in this speech to the constitution, which states that everyone should be equal, but yet they are in exile from the rest of the society purely because of the color of their skin.

And so we've come to cash this check, a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom and security of justice.” Martin Luther king jr. said a lot of important things in this speech but the most important thing I think he said is when he compares the Declaration of Independence to a check. And says that for the black people had bad checks and they didn’t receive the same funds as everyone else who got their checks. Which is all the white people or any citizen for the United States got. And they received their checks they received freedom and the pursuit of happiness. Unlike all the negro’s sadly.

"We refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation". I believe this quote is the most important because it costs nothing to be nice to one another and settle aside one's differences, especially because one persons skin color is darker than another's. At that time and even now there is unnecessary violence and other forms of racism directed towards blacks that degrade them as human beings. Martin Luther King believed correctly that every man (and woman) is created equal. We are all the same species, we all function the same as humans, we all feel emotions the same as humans, we should all treat others the way we would want to be treated ourselves. It costs $0 to be kind and support one another.

“We have also come to his hallowed spot to remind them of the fierce urgency of now.” MLk reminds our nation that “the time is now” because if not now when? This speech not only brings attention to the racial injustices in the world, but to propose that this is a time for immediate action, not a “gradualism” to take over. The sense of urgency in his tone plants a seed in his audiences head that we can not wait around for people to convert the segregation or police brutality, but to take a stand and to fight for it themselves.

That’s just something beautiful to think that even when all this hate was brewing, Martin Luther King stood for nonviolence in any situation.

My favorite line from the Martin Luther Kings speech was the simple phrase " I have a dream..". This was my favorite line of the whole speech because the repetition of this phrase gave it more emphasis on Kings message. Every time that King said " I have a dream," he followed it up with something that was possible for society and the people of American could easily change. For example King says " I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up, live out the true meaning of its creed: " We hold these truths to be self-evident. that all men are created equal." This quote helps my claim because American can easily change their ways and help every man and woman no matter what race become equal.Martin Luther Kings dreams were always something that can be easily be changed if America didn't discriminate against any race.

In these lines, he shows the hope he has for all of America, he shows he has always hoped for this dream that all black Americans have shared amongst each other and continue to share, to come true and that he will never stop dreaming until it becomes a reality. Another thing I love about these lines (the whole speech as well) is that there is not even an ounce of hatred for white people, and it seems as if his only concern is to spread love amongst all of America.

Dr. King's speech was very effective in rallying lots of colored America to get behind his cause and was very inspirational. To me, the most important thing he said was the idea of kids growing up together of all races and that not being a limiting factor in the creation of a better society. Kids of different backgrounds and races being able to grow up without the thinking of them being superior or inferior based on race, religion, or gender will eliminate the social inequality tensions in the next generation which will benefit all of society. Racism, sexism, and antisemitism will be things of the past when any kid from anywhere in the world can grow up without the feeling of dislike or hatred towards a person or child based on those factors. The removal of the boundaries will set everyone's social status to be the same based on these specific factors.

The most important thing Dr. King said was that he envisioned the interracial public schools. the reason I say so is because kids are the most powerful way to get a message through to people. Kids are the future so when Dr. King said this it made many people realize we have to make a change for the sake of the kids and their education.

The most important part of Martin Luther King Jr’s speech to me is when he states “we will be able to speed up that day when all of god’s children- Black men and white men, Jews and gentiles, protestants and Catholics will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual: "Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!" This part is the most Important to me because it shows that multiple types of people are excluded and considered different or unworthy to have rights.

When Dr. King said, "We hold these truths to self-evident: that all men are created equal," was important because in todays society we all are equal now in multiple ways. I really think this was important because it really changed the way people are as individuals. Not just men have equal but women as well have them. Dr. King really changed people's perspectives of a lot of things that were happening during that time. Looking back at that and looking at todays society it really has changed completely.

I believe one of the most important things in Dr. Martin Luther Kings speech was when he said he has a dream that one day his black children will stand hand in hand with a white child. I believe this part in his speech shows how far the United States has come in regards of moving far away from segregation. Today you see children of all colors siting together in a lunch room laughing and hanging out together. Where in Dr. Kings time seeing children together of different skin color was unacceptable.

"But 100 years later, the Negro still is not free" MLK is usining allusion and referring back to slavery times as the segregation and all the racism is just how it is and was back then even though we arent being forced to work anything we still dont have the same rights or arent seen as equal to "whites". This quote really speaks because its true during that time blacks we treated as if they are still inferior to others.

One of the most important parts of Martin Luther Kings "I have a dream speech" is the part where he says that the African American community will no longer be waiting for their complete freedom. " One hundred years later the negro is still not free.... we have come here today to remind America of the fierce urgency of now." This is the most important part of the speech because I believe that these lines held a lot of power behind them. They were a warning to the rest of America that the African American community will no longer be pushed to the side and ignored. They will no longer stand for all of the unequalness and discrimination taking place in their community. But the important thing about this whole thing is that he was able to get his point across without having to use any violence.

I thought the most important thing Dr. King said was he was proud to have Blacks and Whites and other coloreds joined together. It empowered that he didn't want to fight to get equality, he wanted for all of us to come together and unite as one. It was important that he made that speech and was bold enough to talk to thousands of people because they were afraid that the country wasn't ready to accept them and would discriminate them even though they had worked so hard to gain equality. I think if Dr. King hadn't made the speech he made, we would have been on the long road to freedom and peace in the world.

The most important thing that Dr.King said in his "I have a Dream Speech" was "I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal." and "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." The first statement is important because he quotes what our founding fathers wrote in the declaration of independence and how he hopes that after all this time what they wrote will actually become truth. I also believe the second statement is important because he explains a future where people are not judged at all because of their skin color. This is important to our country because we need unity and racial equality is a big step towards it.

I believe the most important part of Dr. Kings "I Have a Dream Speech" is the part which the speech gets its name from. It outlines the goals of the movement and what society should strive for, it was a noble goal no individual could reasonably oppose.

The part that stuck out to me the most is when he said, “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.” This resonated with me because it is such a simple yet powerful phrase. You’d think people would do this naturally and treat everyone with the same respect until they have committed an action that would have you question their morals.

Martin Luther Kings speech was the reason why people of different color can be together without being segregated. As his whole speech points to that outcome of all colors being the same I thought the one thing he said that was most important to me was " the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood." I feel like by saying this is a great example of leaving the past behind and only try and better the future no matter what happened. This is a statement of forgiveness, and points out that his main goal is to only be freed from segregation for him and his peers and the future generations.

I found it that the most important thing Dr.King said was that all of us should be treated equally. That was the main purpose of delivering the speech especially to such an intensely large crowd and I feel like he supported it well. Enough to make a big change in the world that led us to where we are today.Free from segregation and equality in freedom. That speech changed the entire world and was strong enough to positively affect and inspire us all.

Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech focuses on important issues regarding the civil rights movement during the 1960s. The speech which ranged around 7 minutes, embodies several meaningful quotes. "No, no we are not satisfied and we will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream." The incorporation of this quote gives way to controversy about religion. With this, it also allows for a sense of deeper empowerment above ourselves. This quotes gives the audience something to relate to, had they been religious.

What I think was most important from Martin Luther king jr was that he was very persistent on wanting to end all suffering for African Americans. He had wanted them to know he wanted it to stop by marching on Washington and giving his speech of what he wants to change for these suffering and slaved people.

In the Martin Luther King JR. speech I think the most important part was... " yes, black men as well as white men - would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness". Everybody in America is born equal and with the same rights. We as citizens should help one another strive for greatness instead of hating on one another because of the color of their skin.

The most important part of the speech to me was the last part about his children. Dr. king wanted to see his four children to live in a nation where they aren't judged based on the color of their skin. This speech changed everything for our country this speech is the reason why there is every race in school now and why people are no longer segregated based on the color of their skin.

"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" this is an important part of the speech because he is saying that people should be judged by the way that they act and by the decisions they make or take not by the color of their skin or by the way they look.

What I believe is important in the "I Have a Dream Speech" is when he states that one day the people of color and the whites will become one. This is important because everyone is human no matter what color they are and the segregation between everyone is not acceptable so, by him saying this concludes that people are one and everyone should get along because were all the same.

Martin Luther King addressed racial discrimination in probably the most influential speech of the time. One of the most important things that he said in his speech was, "In the process of gaining our rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred." I think that this is the most important thing he said in his speech because he says that the process of achieving racial equality does not have to be out of hatred, but out of unity and justice.

The thing that MLK said that really had a effect on me was the classic “I Had A Dream!” People don't really understand how powerful this saying is. If you think about it, it’s sad that his dream is to have equal rights while our dreams consist of making millions of dollars or marrying our dream girls. There is huge difference as you can tell from equal rights which is something that we take for granite which is something that they wish and dream they had.

I think the most important thing that Dr. King does in his speech is use repetition. He uses this literary device several time throughout the essay and it makes his argument a lot stronger. For example he use the repetition of "100 years later" to point out with exertion that they have made no improvements within a years because they are living the same way. The use of his repetition allowed him to point out multiple reasons each time he used it.
