In Dr. King’s iconic speech at the Lincoln Memorial for the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, he urged America to “make real the promises of democracy.” Dr. King synthesized portions of his earlier speeches to capture both the necessity for change and the potential for hope in American society.

The beginning of the speech starts with a reference to the Emancipation Proclamation, which freed millions of slaves in 1863. Dr. King observes that: “one hundred years later, the Negro still is not free.”
