We Have a Dream

Guest blogger: Alicia Eisenbise, Social Media Strategist

Fifty years ago today, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his groundbreaking “I Have a Dream” speech during the March on Washington to a packed audience. Dr. King chose many of his poignant words and phrases with the utmost care and precision, but did you know he also put aside his speech after 10 minutes? Phrases such as “I have a dream” and “a cancelled check” were unplanned. “I have a dream” is said to have been in response to gospel singer Mahalia Jackson saying, “Tell ’em about the dream, Martin!” This incredible combination of words and phrases helped to change the direction of the Civil Rights Movement and left an indomitable mark on history and today we celebrate that milestone.

One of our mottoes is “we believe in dreams.” And today, Dr. Martin Luther King reminds us just how BIG those dreams can be.
