Hampshire. Let freedom ring from the mighty mountains of New York. Let freedom ring from the heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania.” Here Dr. Martin Luther is saying that freedom should be given to everyone no matter where they live or what they look like. “Go back to Missouri, go back to Alabama, go back to South Carolina, go back to Georgia, go back to Louisiana, go back to the slums and ghettos of our northern cities, knowing that somehow this situation can and will be changed.” Dr. King is using repetition here by getting his point across that wherever you are from, you can go home. You can live your life freely and have the same rights as any other human being. After this famous speech, people rejoiced in the fact that there was no long segregation between the races. Many were in favor of Martin Luther’s speech, while some were in protest. These words and phrases contribute to the overall meaning and tone of the speech as it is telling the listeners about how there was no more time to be given, freedom would ring throughout the country, and people could go back to their homes. Shortly after this movement, everyone was civil and had the same rights as one another. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. used many phrases throughout his speech to get his point across.
