Name Date page • 1 You Have a Dream... In his “I Have a Dream” speech, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. includes lines from other texts, like the songs “My Country ‘Tis of Thee” and “Free at Last” and the Declaration of Independence. Today, you’re going to write an original “I Have a Dream” rap that includes quotes from King’s famous speech. First, read the excerpts from King’s “I Have a Dream” speech below, and circle 3-5 words or phrases that stand out to you. I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, 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.
