Storyboard Text

  • Ethos
  • "Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation..."
  • Pathos
  • "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."
  • Logos
  • "...the Negro still is not free...the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacies of segregation and the chains of discrimination...the Negro is still languished in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land..."
  • This is an example of Ethos because Martin Luther King is talking about how Abraham Lincoln was a great American and how his signing of the Proclamation showed hope to Negro slaves.
  • This is an example of Pathos because Martin Luther King creates emotion, passion, and intense feelings by talking about his children and how he dreams that they will be judged by who they are, not how they look.
  • This is an example of Logos because Martin Luther King is persuading and telling the audience why they sould agree and follow his ideas. He says they are still not free, are treated badly and poorly, and need to do something to fix the problem for good.
