King's Dream Has Come True


Martin Luther King, a prominent leader in the American civil rights movement.
Inspired by Mahatma Gandhi's success with non-violent activism, King went along the route of non-violence in his legacy to secure progress on civil rights in the United States.
In his most famous speech "I Have a Dream", given in front of the Lincoln Memorial during the 1963 March on Washington, expressed his desire for a future where blacks and whites, among others, would coexist harmoniously as equals and not to be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.

Today, January 20, 2009, King's dream has come true when Barack Obama becomes the first African-American President in the history of the United States after more than 200 years of Independence.
He addressed the nation saying that it must choose "hope over fear, unity of purpose over conflict and discord" to overcome the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression in 1929.
