Weekend Video - I Have a Dream

With the focus on oratory and politics, I thought it was worthwhile to go to the source. Needless to say, You Tube has dozens upon dozens of different versions of Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech, but after viewing many of them, I felt this version – just a straightforward still image with background music composed by "Paul from Stoke, U.K." was the most powerful.

I'm hearing this speech for the first time, and even as a non-American with minimal knowledge of American history, it gave me sort of a shiver just to listen to it.

I've only started visiting your blog this January, and it's great. It's like a visual history of culture - about what's happening now but with a sense of perspective and what it means in the big picture scheme of things.
