AUGUST 28, 1963, at the Civil Rights March in Washington, D.C., Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., stated:
"I have a dream...where little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls and walk together as sisters and brothers.
I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together."
Martin Luther King continued:
"This will be the day when all of God's children will be able to sing with new meaning,
'My country 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing.
Land where my fathers died, land of the Pilgrims' pride,
from every mountainside, let freedom ring.'"
