On August 28, 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. gave a speech that would go down in history as one of the greatest speeches of the 21st century. In it, he implored America to re-think the way it had treated African-Americans theretofore and plowed ahead using the language of unity and equality.

I would like to answer that.
