“I Have a Dream” Intro Poem

A great beacon of light

Shown to millions of Negro slaves

Whose been seared in the flames of injustice,

Called the Emancipation Proclamation.

 

But this light is translucent

Hundreds of years later

The Negro is still not free

Chained with discrimination and poverty

Exile in his own land

Dramatize to a shameful condition

 

The Negro race has come to the Capitol

The Bank of Justice

To cash a check

To claim their riches of unalienable rights of life,

Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness
