    While we do not celebrate Martin Luther King Jr Day in Canada, the sentiments that MLK evoked in many of his speeches and actions are at the heart of the Canadian spirit I read this version of the famous I have a dream speech because someone close to me ask if I would I am so very pleased that I took the time to read and absorb everything that is in it This book offers some powerfully illustrated pages with an abridged version of the speech, as well as a full text copy at the back, both While we do not celebrate Martin Luther King Jr Day in Canada, the sentiments that MLK evoked in many of his speeches and actions are at the heart of the Canadian spirit I read this version of the famous I have a dream speech because someone close to me ask if I would I am so very pleased that I took the time to read and absorb everything that is in it This book offers some powerfully illustrated pages with an abridged version of the speech, as well as a full text copy at the back, both of which are very important for the reader to digest The illustrations alone are some of the most powerful I have seen in a book, but the text truly brings the sentiment home King speaks about how things had not changed from 1863 when Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation through to the date of the speech, in 1963 I sit here, on January 20, 2020 and think that 157 years have not made much difference While there have been advancements, the world populace is still in a rut of racism, hatred, and class system based on the colour of one s skin and what they accept as a personal creed The world turns to its leaders for guidance and action as, perhaps, King turned to JFK and then LBJ , but America has locked itself into a leader whose bigotry, misogyny, and racism is as blunt as the intellect his puts forth when he opens his mouth But he speaks for the people of America, the grassroots people who cast votes for him, across the country, some will say That, in and of itself is enough to show that there are serious issues.How can we sit here, one fifth of the way into the 21st century and still have such hatred for someone based on their skin or religion How can we continue to push along and think it is ok to allow others, leaders especially, to stand around and spout this garbage It sickens me to think that this is acceptable in the world today This is a domestic issue, an international one It is at the heart of the laws and the constitutionality of the state No one can brush this off and say, but look at this aspect of the country , for this interconnects with all things On the eve of a sobering experience of constitutional rendering, America stands and calls it a political issue, yanking the blindfold off Lady Justice and choking her with it, pretending that there is anything forthright with these actions Martin Luther King, Jr sought equality and fairness, but I am sure he d be evenembarrassed with today s America, and the world I venture to say George Wallace would be right there with him For those who can vote on November 3, 2020, do what you will But, I would ask that each and every one of you read this speech if not this book ahead of time The world is watching to see how you want to be seen, and what stain you wish to make or launder going into 2021 I, too, have a dream and hope Neo can live long enough to see it Kudos, Dr King, for being so frank and honest Your words resonate with me, as does your memory Love hate the review An ever growing collection of others appears at Book for All Seasons, a different sort of Book Challenge

    This picture book was amazing and came with an audio CD of Martin giving his I have a dream speech My students loved this book Even my pessimistic student shared how he loved everything about this book This story splits the speech into separate pages and has beautiful illustrations into It made it easy for students to understand his large and strong vocabulary.I suggest everyone to read this book to their children, students, etc

    Ahh yes, I remember this book I got it when it first came out in 97, it was the biggest in terms of length size I owned as it was made in the style of books you put on your living room table The book contains the full speech supplemented by specially commissioned pictures that were interpreting a quotation from the speech At the end was a commentary on the pictures, in which we are told what the artists were trying to capture.As for the actual speech, I do not know whatto add to the Ahh yes, I remember this book I got it when it first came out in 97, it was the biggest in terms of length size I owned as it was made in the style of books you put on your living room table The book contains the full speech supplemented by specially commissioned pictures that were interpreting a quotation from the speech At the end was a commentary on the pictures, in which we are told what the artists were trying to capture.As for the actual speech, I do not know whatto add to the endless commentary This speech was one that King had been giving throughout 1963 most famously you can still find the last proto version of the speech he gave in Detroit of that year and it starts by reminding the crowd that it had only been 100 years since the Emancipation Proclamation and that African Americans had been issued a check marked insufficient funds and it goes on from there to become the great possibly over celebrated speeches of the 20th century Just for the curious here is Dr King looking back at this speech in the context of the Vietnam War

    Until I ve read this speech in its entirety I didn t know that before the mesmerizing I Have a Dream I Have a Dream and Let Freedom Ring Let Freedom Ring passages here Martin Luther King Jr had used some similes, likening the Negro then to someone cashing a check, or collecting a debt under a promissory note which is the American constitution This is also perhaps where President Obama patterned his Yes We Can Yes We Can inaugural speech.There is, indeed, a strong emotional pull on speeches tha Until I ve read this speech in its entirety I didn t know that before the mesmerizing I Have a Dream I Have a Dream and Let Freedom Ring Let Freedom Ring passages here Martin Luther King Jr had used some similes, likening the Negro then to someone cashing a check, or collecting a debt under a promissory note which is the American constitution This is also perhaps where President Obama patterned his Yes We Can Yes We Can inaugural speech.There is, indeed, a strong emotional pull on speeches that repeat phrases again and again, like the immortal A Time to____ and A Time to _______ in Ecclesiastes For historic speeches it is also an advantage for the speakers to die young, preferably by assassination That way, they are prevented from making a mess out of their lives after their speeches Martin Luther King Jr., for example, was a womanizer like President Clinton Perhaps had he lived to his old age this I Have a Dream speech of his would have been mercilessly parodied, with cartoons showing him dreaming of women instead of freedom for the Negroes.Look now at President Obama, on his second term, being called President O Bomber as he makes plans to bomb Syria

    It was great to re read my anniversary edition today Such a simple speech, but so powerful, and there is muchto it then just the I Have a Dream section that is often quoted.And this year when Martin Luther King Jr Day falls on his actual birthday, I think I ll start Black History Month early, similar to leap year, to make up for all those days that are shorted every other February BlackHistoryMonth DiversityMonday WeNeedDiverseBooks OwnVoicesBecause we can

    This was the first time I actually read Dr King s speech The main part of the book was short clips of the speech with illustrations The last two pages were the full speech, in smaller print It is such a powerful speech and I think everyone should read it all the way through at least once.
