‘I have a dream’ speech lives on in youth
TODAY marks the 51st anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr’s “I have a dream” speech.
The American civil rights anthem asked for respect and recognition for all and was credited with prompting the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
With his eyes on the future, King said: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the colour of their skin but by the content of their character.”
This week, I spoke with four indigenous students whose own cultural pride and dreams received a boost at the ATSI Academic and Talent Aspirations Program.
With pride in themselves and their families, they’re creating a future – for humanity. Celebrate with them on page 9.
