Martin Luther King, Jr.: "I Have a Dream"

Watch it.

Watch it for a lesson in rhetoric.

Watch it for a lesson in delivery.

Watch it for a lesson on the worse parts of American history and the better parts of the American dream.

Watch it to renew the sense of what it means to have purpose and passion, to see injustice and to speak and to work to make the world better.

Watch it to celebrate the role that one man played in improving our lives. If you were alive then, you can't but see how the world, the American world at least, has changed for the better in matters of race. Not that there doesn't remain room for improvement, but it is a vastly different world than Dr. King's in 1963.
