I have a dream Summary interpretation

 I have a dream summary: Martin Luther King was the leader of the black civil rights movement in the USA in the 1960s. This easy is his speech delivered (given) on August 28th in Washington D. C before a crowd of 200 thousand people both black and whites. He addresses the mass in front of the Lincoln Memorial (Lincoln State).

Martin Luther King says that even after one hundred years of emancipation proclamation (Declaration of freedom), The negros (black people) have not been emancipated truly in real life. 

They are not still free in practical life situations. There are millions of negros still working as slaves. Slavery was not abolished in reality. The black people are still suffering under the fire of injustice. There are police brutality and oppression upon them. The blacks are also segregated in every field of life. For example, blacks are not allowed to enter hotels, motels restaurants, libraries, and other public places. They even not allowed to study together with the whites.

According to the American constitution “All men are created equally and they are endowed with (provided with) fundamental (basic) rights”- the right of freedom, (liberty), life, and happiness. But, thus spirit of the constitution has not been applied to the negros (blacks). It means black people are not equal to whites. 

Therefore, Martin Luther King says that it’s a better time to demand their rights. He says that the black people, during the time of their protect shouldn’t behave violently and the demand for their rights should be made peacefully. It means their campaign wasn’t a non-violent movement.

Martin Luther King has a dream to be free, to develop brotherhood with the whites, finish injustice and oppression, and enjoy a happy life of a free citizen living in a happy state (country).
