I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves [Audience:] Yeah who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice.

It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity.

1922: A Dedication or an Opening?

Hmm But one hundred years later All right , the Negro still is not free. My Lord, Yeah One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination.

Hmm One hundred years later All right , the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years later My Lord [applause], the Negro is still languished in the corners of American society and finds himself in exile in his own land.

When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence Yeah , they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men My Lord , would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note insofar as her citizens of color are concerned.

My Lord Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked insufficient funds.

My Lord [laughter] No, no We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. Yes Lord [enthusiastic applause] We have also come to this hallowed spot My Lord to remind America of the fierce urgency of now. Mhm This is no time My Lord to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time Yes it is to make real the promises of democracy.

My Lord Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time [applause] to lift our nation from the quicksands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood.

It would be fatal for the nation to overlook the urgency of the moment. My Lord is not an end, but a beginning.

My Lord Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time [ applause ] to lift our nation from the quicksands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood. It would be fatal for the nation to overlook the urgency of the moment. My Lord is not an end, but a beginning.

"I Have a Dream," Address Delivered at the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom

Yes And those who hope that the Negro needed to blow off steam and will now be content will have a rude awakening if the nation returns to business as usual.

The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nation until the bright day of justice emerges. But there is something that I must say to my people, who stand on the warm threshold which leads into the palace of justice: Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. My Lord, No, no, no, no [ applause ] We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline.

We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. My Lord Again and again No, no , we must rise to the majestic heights Yes of meeting physical force with soul force.

My Lord The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to a distrust of all white people Hmm , for many of our white brothers, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny [ sustained applause ], and they have come to realize that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom.

We cannot walk alone. And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead. We cannot turn back. Yes We can never be satisfied [applause] as long as our bodies, heavy with the fatigue of travel, cannot gain lodging in the motels of the highways and the hotels of the cities.

Yes We can never be satisfied as long as our children are stripped of their selfhood and robbed of their dignity by signs stating for whites only. I am not unmindful that some of you have come here out of great trials and tribulations. My Lord Some of you have come fresh from narrow jail cells.

You have been the veterans of creative suffering. Continue to work with the faith Hmm that unearned suffering is redemptive. Go back to Mississippi Yeah , go back to Alabama, go back to South Carolina, go back to Georgia, go back to Louisiana, go back to the slums and ghettos of our northern cities Yes , knowing that somehow this situation can and will be changed.

Yes Let us not wallow in the valley of despair.
