On Wednesday, August 28, 1963, 250,000 Americans joined at the Lincoln Memorial for the March on Washington’s last discourse. As Martin Luther King Jr. remained at the platform, he pushed his notes aside in the long run. The night before the walk, Dr. King started chipping away at his discourse with a little gathering of counsels in the Willard Hotel’s entryway. The first discourse was more political and less memorable, as Clarence B. Jones indicated, and it did exclude any reference to dreams. In the wake of conveying the now-famous line, “we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream,” Dr. King changed his discourse into a message.
In front of an audience close to Dr. King, vocalist Mahalia Jackson supposedly continued saying, “Tell ’em about the dream, Martin,” and keeping in mind that nobody will know whether he heard her. It could almost certainly have been the motivation Dr. King required. At that point, Dr. King proceeded, “Even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream” And then the acclaimed Baptist evangelist lectured on, including redundancy and sketching out the particulars of his fantasy. And keeping in mind that this extemporized discourse given on that hot August day in 1963 was not viewed as a general achievement promptly, it is currently perceived as probably the best address in American history.
