“I Have a Dream” The Performance of I have A dream live has enlarged myknowledge of the courage of Martin Luther King Jr. due to the fact that thewriters of the play showed and highlighted Kings courage to stand up tomultiple people in his life fighting for what is right.
In one act of theperformance they highlighted that at the age of 14, while coming back from aspelling contest MLK and his teacher were told to get up and move back by thebus even though they were in the “colored” section. All of this was so a whitemale could sit down. King disapproved of this and instead of his teacher havingto moved, King chose to stand up the whole two hours home.
All the way home thebus driver would speed through every pot whole and would swerve around anycorner. All the time Martin stood his ground showing that he was going to fightfor his rights whenever he could and would never give up.The show Ihave a dream increased my appreciation for all that Martin Luther King did.One reason was that even though he came from the south where people of colorhad certain rules and doings the separate and segregated, after college Kingdecided to go back into the fire of the south to preach about what is right inMontgomery Alabama, becoming the most well-known leaders of the civil rightsmovement. King was appointed to be the leader of the “Montgomery bus boycott,”The boycott lasted 381 days, theboycott was ended with the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that segregation onpublic buses isunconstitutional.
MLK was one ofthose willing to risk their lives and wellbeing’s for everybody else’s to beequal. Seeing IHave a Dream live on stage increased my awareness that everything in MartinLuther King Jr’s. Life led up to his most famous speech on Washington I have a dream. During the play you canreally see that everything his does in his life is truly out of his heart. Youcan also tell that during the I have adream speech, he truly means everything he said because his life was just abig preparation for that moment.
You can see him put down his notecards andspeak from his heart showing how much he has fought for this. The famous speechwas a marking point that drew more attention onto the civil rights movement,and inspired many people to join the civil rights movement. Martin Luther KingJr was a man who fought for everybody to be equal and for everybody to bejudged by their character not by the color of their skin.
