African-American civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr used tactics of nonviolence and civil disobedience based on his Christian beliefs and nonviolent activism to lead the African-American civil rights movement, in delivering his "I Have A Dream" speech from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. on August 28th, 1963, in front of 250,000 civil rights supporters. This was during the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, which he calls for an end to racism in the United States, and called for civil and economic rights. His "I Have A Dream" speech is still an inspirational to generations around the world in all different backgrounds, as it was a defining moment of the African-American civil rights movement. This led to Martin Luther King winning the 1964 for his leadership and philosophy role in the movement. The march is credited with helping to pass the of 1964, and preceded the Selma Voting Rights Movement which led to the passage of the of 1965. Despite what's currently going on in our modern day society involving , if it wasn't for Martin Luther King Jr's "I Have A Dream" speech, we would still be living in the harsh times of Jim Crow laws via racial and laws. The moral message behind the "I Have A Dream" speech is as long as you believe, trust and have faith in God in leaving everything in his hands, you're never too young or too old to have a dream that God gives to you for a purpose and a reason, in breaking down barriers, proving the impossible is possible, and you can do anything that you can set your mind to do; no matter your circumstances, your sexual orientation, the color of your skin, or your gender. RIP Martin Luther King Jr!
