We read this for a peace and justice class I took this semester at Eastern Mennonite University and out of the books I’ve seen on King this one does perhaps the best job of including the entire significance of his message in just over 200 pages All sides from the most uoted and convenient to the most grating and uncomfortable are included You will recognize many uotes as they have been repeated ad infinitum in our media for decades Some of the lesser known uotes are understandably left out of the media as they don’t coincide with our historical national agenda such as this one concerning the Vietnam War “God didn’t call America to do what she’s doing in the world now God didn’t call America to engage in a senseless unjust war such as the war in Vietnam And we are criminals in that war We have committed war crimes almost than any nation in the world and I’m going to continue to say it And we won’t stop it because of our pride and our arrogance as a nationBut God has a way of putting nations in their place” It’s uite clear to me how King would feel about many of our current endeavors I am unsure of the source but someone once said “Dead men make such convenient heroes They cannot rise to challenge the images we would fashion from their lives” One wonders what would be the reaction if we uoted the King that uttered prophetic messages like that oneinstead of the same “I have a dream” speech that we hear every year on his token holiday For those unfamiliar with this side of King and the COMPLETE transcripts of his major speeches and essays this is a must read

Honors Martin Luther King Jr's courageous dream and his immeasurable contribution by presenting his most memorable words in a concise and convenient edition As Coretta Scott King says in her foreword This collection includes many of what I consider to be my husband's most important writings and orations. Martin Luther King was a great speaker This I Have a Dream speech was just vivid and elouent so that anyone with normal brain was to be touchedI'm sure everyone again with a normal Human brain would agree with my feedback to his speech So I'd like to talk about something different that his speech also helps us think aboutI've realized that Martin Luther King Jr in his own speeches always called the African Americans NegrosNegro just meant black color just like noir in French and Kepi Noir Black Cap is the symbol of leadership in French armed forces only the Officers and NCOs wear the black one Besides as far as I know there are at least two rivers called Negro in Latin America meaning Black RiverWe don’t feel offended either when we hear somebody talking about the “Black Knights” Actually the Marine aviation “Black Knights” suadron leader was an African American Captain who made me join the Marine Corps; he was my dream It wasn't just in the movie Independence Day 1996 but the suadron really existed in El Toro CA where I grew up until 1996However today the word Negro is demeaning and tabooed just like Josen jin which simply meant Chosun iin the Koreans from the Kingdom of Chosun in Japanese but Koreans hate that word like the African Americans today hate Negro calling that the N word See how things change in our language livesI think reading the speech once again turned out very meaningful after all with this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountain of despair a stone of hope With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood With this faith we will be able to work together Martin Luther King Jr in his famous I Have a Dream speech at Lincoln Memorial on August 28 1963
