  • Seminal U. S. Documents Essential Question Project
  • By: Rachel Dempsey Period 2
  • How do seminal U. S. documents reflect the beliefs of the people and the foundation of American society?
  • Seminal U. S. documents reflect the beliefs of the people by promoting the ideas that American people believe.
  • For example, Dr. King inspires the idea of equality. In his "I Have a Dream" speech, he asks that some day "little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers" (MLK 498). This helps encourage Americans to believe in equality.
  • Seminal U. S. documents reflect the foundations of American society in their purposes. Their purposes reflect the goals and stability of the country at their time.
  • When delivering his speech, John F. Kennedy attempts to calm the citizens of America. He sends a message to other nations when he lets "every other power know that this hemisphere intends to remain the master of its own house" (JFK 43). This allusion to the Monroe Doctrine demonstrates his willingness to defend the nation should it prove necessary, and also calms the citizens that their home will not be taken by another country.
