I have a dream:
During his time as a young man, Martin Luther King Jr. worked as a clerk for the legate office of some of the southern states. When this clerk claimed that they were not allowed to hire blacks because they did not have Biblical faith, MLK said, “If you cannot be happy with what you have, then do not expect more of your God.
If you cannot laugh with him, then do not expect to talk with him.” This speech would later be used in his famous “I Have A Dream” speech. He remained resolute in his views, even when many others around him began to waver. As the civil rights movement moved to the national forefront, King became one of its leaders along with other future leaders such as Dr King, Martin Luther King Jr. and other young people.
