On August 28, 1963, Martin Luther King, Jr. delivers what many consider one of the greatest speeches in American history to 200,000 people who attended the event called The March on Washington.
1. First read the manuscript and see how many language devices (simile, metaphor, alliteration, antithesis, parallelism, repetition) you can pick out while reading. Write down some examples. I attached dictionary definitions of the devices for a refresher for you. https://www.archives.gov/files/press/exhibits/dream-speech.pdf (cut and paste into your browser)
2. Now, listen to the audio file of the speech delivery to determine if you are able to pick up anything from the listening experience that you did not catch in the reading? https://www.npr.org/2010/01/18/122701268/i-have-a-dream-speech-in-its-entirety (cut and paste — click on blue arrow)
3. Lastly, watch the speech being delivered. https://youtu.be/smEqnnklfYs (cut and paste into your browser)
What makes witnessing this speech the richest experience?
In the textbox below, write your reflection, which should consist of 3 paragraphs, where you will compare the three levels of communication that you just experienced. How did your perception change from the reading to the listening experience, and then from the listening to the witnessing experience? Because this was a speech delivered outside, without the use of visual aids, Dr. King relied upon the use of many language devices to establish and maintain the interest and engagement of his audience. How does the extensive use of colorful language devices add imagery and rhythm to the delivery? Discuss how these devices increased the impact of the listening experience. How did body language enhance the witnessing experience? Did the live listeners’ reactions affect your appreciation of the message? Why or why not?
