"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the colour of their skin but by the content of their character... And if America is to be a great nation, this must become true" - Martin Luther King Jr, from his famous speech at the march on Washington, 28 August 1963. Below is an excerpt. View Image - Bernice King and her brother, Martin Luther King III, with a portrait of their father presented to President George W. Bush, 21 January 2002 "... I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: 'We hold these truths to be self-evident; that all men are created equal.' I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood. I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice. I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the colour of their skin but by the content of their character.
