Martin Luther King's speech

Суркова, Бабенко

Martin Luther King's Prophetic Last speech


All we say to America is be true to what you said on paper. (Oh yes) [Applause] If I lived in | China or even Russia, or any totalitarian country, | maybe I could understand |some of these illegal injunctions. | Maybe I could understand the denial of certain basic First Amendment privileges, because they haven't committed themselves to that | over there. But somewhere I read | of the freedom of assembly. Somewhere I read | (Yes) of the freedom of speech. (Yes) Somewhere I read | (Yes) of the freedom of press. (Yes) Somewhere I read | (Yes)that the greatness of America is the right to protest | for rights. [Applause] And so just as I say we aren't going to let any dogs | or water hoses turn us around, | we aren't going to let any injunction turn us around.

Well, I don't know what will happen now. | We've got some difficult days ahead | (Yes)  but it really doesn't matter with me now, (Yes)  because I've been to the mountaintop. (Yes) [Applause]  And I don't mind. | Like anybody, I would like to live | a long life — longevity | has its place. But I'm not concerned about that now. I just want to do God's will. (Yes)  And He's allowed me to go up to the mountain. (Yes) And I've looked over, (Yes)  and I've seen | the Promised Land. (Yes) [Applause] I may not get there with you. (Yes)  But I want you to know tonight, (Yes)  that we, as a people, will get to the promised land. (Yes) [Applause]  So I'm happy, tonight.  I'm not worried about anything, I'm not fearing any man. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord. (Yes) [Applause]

One day, | we will have to stand before the God of history | and we will talk in terms of things we've done. It seems as if I can hear the God of history saying, "That was not enough. |But I was hungry, | and he fed me not."
