Storyboard Text

  • Simile: "No! No we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream."
  • Metaphor: Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline."
  • Repetition: "I have a dream"
  • They will not stop their fight for freedom until they believe that they are treated fairly and seen as any other man or woman.
  • Pathos: "With this faith we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day."
  • He doesn't want any violence to have anything to do with what he's fighting for. He wants the point that he's trying to make to be made with peace.
  • Allusion: "Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. But one hundred years later, the Negro still is not free..."
  • He repeated this to make his point across that this is something important to him that he wants to make happen.
  • Powerful Line: "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."
  • He persuades them to believe in what he is telling them by getting into their emotions with saying they will work it out together as one while they all struggle together as a whole.
  • He is maybe hinting towards saying Lincoln was not so perfect and really got nothing done to change slavery like most think he did.
  • This is the most powerful line to me because he shows how he doesn't want people by their color and doesn't add any other drama along with his point.
