Influential and inspirational, Martin Luther King Jr. is considered one of the greatest speakers of all time. His powerful and moving speeches helped to inspire and mobilize the Civil Rights Movement in America, which echoed worldwide. MLK Jr’s iconic “I Have a Dream” speech is characterized by its eloquence, passion and power to convert a message of profound hope and future progress.
MLK Jr’s speeches were unique as they were rooted in biblical language and imagery, inspired by his work as a Baptist Minister. His experience as a Minister prepared him to address large audiences in a clear and connected manner that cannot be matched by many.
