When King said " Let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia: let freedom ring from lookout Mountain of Tennessee: let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of Mississippi. From every mountainside, let freedom ring,” (King 51) it made me think that I could to something. I made me realize that I could change my situation.
Thank you for the interview.
I was emotional to say the least. I had come from Alabama, arguably the most racist state in the country. On my way here I had been stopped many times by police officers trying to keep people from gong to the speech. It gave my journey a kind of meaning, you know. I could not stop because I was going for a cause I believed in.
So the police officers were like the "gun carrying men and women"(Nafisi 82) in Lolita in Tehran.
When I heard the speech, it came my family hope for the future. It made me think that one day us whites and blacks would be equal.
Exactly what lines made you think that Mr. Green?
When King said " I have a dream that one day my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of there skin, but they the content of their character." (King 50). I have two kinds, so these lines really ht me hard.
That makes sense.
I would be glad to.
Mrs. Trestin, I heard that you were in the back of the crowd at King's speech. Would you mind telling about the experience?
After I heard these people speak, I realized why they went to the speech. They wanted to show the world that they were fighting for by “ conveyed the moral power of the decade's great crusade for civil rights to a television audience of millions” (Frey). They wanted to preach a message of acceptance an d love for their fellow brothers.
