Student’s Name Instructor’s Name Course Code Submission Date Rhetorical Devices in Martin Luther King’s Speech The “I Have a Dream” speech by Martin Luther King is one of the most memorable speeches of all time. The speech was delivered by the human right activist on 28th of August 1963 in the presence of over 200000 civil right supports who were marching to Washington in the plight for equality (Hansen). The main aim of the speech was to raise awareness about the racial segregation and equality that was present and to ask his audience to fight for justice and their rights as American citizens. The speech by Martin Luther was one of the most appealing to his audience and the generation to come after that since it defined the path for the fight for civil rights by the black community around the world. Martin Luther used a blend of ethos the stepping stone for the fight of African Americans to be recognized for their character and abilities and simply for the color of their skin. The fight for racial equality by Martin Luther has become a success and today a black American is able to enjoy the fruits of King’s cause. The United States of America voted for its first black American president Barrack Obama bridging the huge racial gap that existed during King’s time. Today it is safe to say that the dream that Martin Luther King describes in his speech has been achieved and the Negro is “Free at last” (National 6).
