On MLK Jr. Day

Today we remember the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. An icon of the Civil Rights movement Dr. King accomplished a lot. One of his many timeless contributions to political discourse is his I Have A Dream speech. The structure of the speech is brilliant. In addition to the authenticity of the message, the repetition of language, the rhythm of the prose, the allusions to Biblical and secular traditions, are all mesmerizing and inspiring.
