I Have A Dream
I recently listened to a 7-CD course on Rhetoric and the Art of Persuasion that I found at the library. The professor spent a lot of time touting Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech as one of the best examples of American Rhetoric, right up there with Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address. He was right. This is without a doubt one of the best oratorical performances of all time.
