“Free at last. Free at last. Thank God almighty, we are free at last.” These were the final words in Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech in 1963.
Dr. King grew up when Jim Crow Laws and segregation were part of the daily life in the United States. He, however, was not satisfied living a life with division and inequality. Dr. King joined the Civil Rights Movement with other African Americans such as Rosa Parks, to raise awareness against discrimination and bring unity throughout the entire country.
