 John Lewis        August 2013

 

John Lewis

was the 23-year-old son

of Alabama sharecroppers

and already a veteran

of the civil rights movement

when he came to the capital

50 years ago this month

to deliver a fiery call for justice

on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

 

Mr. Lewis’s urgent cry

— “We want our freedom,

and we want it now!” —

was eclipsed on the steps that day

by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s

“I Have A Dream” speech.

 

But two years later,

after Alabama State Police officers

beat him and fractured his skull

while he led a march in Selma,

he was back in Washington

to witness President Lyndon B. Johnson

sign the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

 

Today Mr. Lewis

is a congressman from Georgia

and the sole surviving speaker

from the March on Washington

in August 1963.

 

His history makes him

the closest thing

to a moral voice

in the divided Congress.

 

At 73, he is still battling

a half-century later.

 

With the Voting Rights Act in jeopardy now

that the Supreme Court has invalidated

one of its central provisions,

Mr. Lewis, a Democrat,

is fighting an uphill battle

to reauthorize it.

 

He is using his stature

as a civil rights icon

to prod colleagues

like the Republican leader,

Representative Eric Cantor of Virginia,

to get on board.

 

He has also met

with the mother of Trayvon Martin

and compared his shooting

to the 1955 murder

of 14-year-old Emmett Till.

 

Mr. Lewis has an answer for those

who say the election of a black president

was a fulfillment of Dr. King’s dream:

It was only “a down payment,”

he said in an interview.

 

“There’s a lot of pain,

a lot of hurt in America,”

Mr. Lewis said in his office

on Capitol Hill,

which resembles a museum

with wall-to-wall

black-and-white photographs

of the civil rights movement.

 

Current events, he said,

“remind us of our dark past.”

Deconstructing Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Dream

by Allison Keyes

June 23, 2013        9:00 AM

http://www.npr.org/blogs/codeswitch/2013/06/23/194271303/deconstructing-martin-luther-king-jr-s-dream

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Two months

before the March on Washington,

King stood before a throng

of 25,000 people

at Cobo Hall in Detroit

to expound upon making

“the American Dream a reality”.

 

King repeatedly exclaimed,

“I have a dream this afternoon”.

 

He articulated the words

of the prophets Amos and Isaiah,

declaring that

“justice will roll down like waters,

and righteousness like a mighty stream,”

for “every valley shall be exalted,

and every hill and mountain

shall be made low”.

 

As he had done numerous times

in the previous two years,

King concluded his message

imagining the day

“when all of God’s children,

black men and white men,

Jews and Gentiles,

Protestants and Catholics,

will be able to join hands

and sing with the Negroes

in the spiritual of old:

Free at last! Free at last!

Thank God Almighty,

we are free at last!”.

http://mlk-kpp01.stanford.edu/index.php/encyclopedia/documentsentry/doc_speech_at_the_great_march_on_detroit/

 

 

 

 

Parts of King's Detroit speech

may sound familiar

to those who have heard the address

he gave at the March on Washington.

 

But the Detroit speech

was tailored especially

for a city with a long history

of Civil Rights activism.

 

(...)

 

King gave his Detroit speech

just two weeks after NAACP

field secretary Medgar Evers

was assassinated.

 

His speech also came on the heels

of protests in Birmingham, Ala.,

where police chief Bull Connor

ordered police to use

fire hoses and dogs

to break up demonstrations.

I Have a Dream speech - first version

 

 

King’s 55-minute speech

at a high school gymnasium

in Rocky Mount on 27 November 1962

 

Months before

the Rev Martin Luther King Jr

delivered his famous

I Have a Dream speech

to hundreds of thousands of people

gathered in Washington in 1963,

he fine-tuned his civil rights message

before a much smaller audience

in North Carolina.
