Pre Writing for Project 1
For my Project 1 I will discuss Dr. Martin Luther King Jr "I Have A Dream Speech". Dr. King has made a great mark in history for raising awareness in the civil rights movement. To put it bluntly, Dr. King was fed up with all the injustice laws against the colored people. He felt like this country was segregated and claimed that there was promises that were never acted upon. For example, in the speech he spake,  "This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the "unalienable Rights" of "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note, insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. " In making this comment, Dr. King Jr. is explaining that promises were made in the Declaration of Independence but were never equally distributed. 
Dr. King Jr. did not like how the whites and the colored had different signs for one another. That was great proof of segregation. The way the government was treating the colored minority was unequal compared to the way the whites were being treated. However, when Dr. King Jr. delivered his speech it all changed. If he never delivered his speech or protested non-violently we might still be segregated, but luckily we had a great man like Dr. King Jr. who stopped segregation from greatly expanding.
Without his confidence and great ways of using authority he would have not been successful. When you listen to him speak, you don't hear hesitation, you hear confidence in a man. He presents everything with background knowledge. 
Therefore, I am more than eager to write my Project 1 on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. His "I Have a Dream Speech" is one of the greatest speeches of all time which really shaped the U.S of what it is today.
