History Facts - Martin Luther King's Speech

  1. On August 28, 1963, Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his historic "I have a dream" speech, in which he urged Americans to work towards civil and economic equality and to put an end to racism.
  2. The event where the speech was delivered was the "March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom". King, being the most prominent of civil rights leaders, felt that a united march would signal a change for race relations in the United States.
  3. Surprisingly, the march was not universally supported by civil rights activists. Malcolm X and Storm Thurmond, for instance, had a number of objections to the goals of the march.
  4. Did you know that the "dream" section of Dr. King's speech was entirely improvised? It was not planned to be a part of the event, but upon Mahalia Jackson's urging, Dr. King delivered the most historic speech in American history.
  5. The typewritten speech that Martin Luther King gave ended up in the hands of a college basketball coach named George Raveling. Raveling was standing next to King while he delivered the speech.
  6. An expensive sound system was installed for the event, but it was damaged right before it began. As a result, Dr. King's speech was not clearly heard by all attendees.
