give African Americans equality. Martin Luther wanted to create a society where skin
color didn’t matter.
Summary of speech: Martin Luther king begins his speech by acknowledging

gods children. He expresses how he wants a peaceful movement meaning no

Personal evaluation: I believe and agree in what Martin Luther King. I strongly
believe that all men were created equal, no matter what skin color you are, you are the
same as everyone else. I believe that god made us equal and he loves everyone of us
no matter the skin color. Growing up, I dealt with a lot of racism, even though I am
not black, my ethnicity was different from everyone else and I didn’t go through what
the blacks did in the past but it did give me the ability to not judge others based on
their skin color or race and made me passionate about equality for everyone.
Observation of speech: The emotion of kings speech was very moving and you could
tell he was very passionate about what he believed in and what he wanted.
