Read: MLK I Have A Dream Speech 

As we have encountered in our country’s history time and again, it has been necessary for the federal government to step in to protect and enforce the freedoms of oppressed Americans, especially African Americans. 

Discuss some passages from MLK’s speech that you feel are the most powerful or important and remember that several significant civil rights laws were passed in the two years that followed the speech. (Henretta 836-837)
