Here is the text of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech, truly one of the greatest speeches in American history.
You do realize that the “I have a Dream” speech is copyrighted, don’t you? The Mating Luther King estate exercises control over the speech and it’s publication. Do you have permission to print it?
No, I didn’t realize that, thanks for letting me know.
“…one of the greatest speeches in American history”
Indeed, and considering the high calibre of the great speeches in the American tradition, MLK truly nailed it! I would go so far as to say it is the last great speech in that venerable democratic tradition of which you Americans have every right to feel proud. I’m very sorry to hear that it’s been copyrighted; such a great speech transcends copyright: it is part of the universal legacy of humankind.
