History of Speeches
Speeches were used to get people's ideas across in a nonviolent way and were used all throughout history. They were not just used during the Civil Rights Movement, in fact in many major events throughout history. It was a civil and just way to stand up for injustices but also a great way to persuay an audience.
PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: "Rosa Parks’ singular act of disobedience launched a movement. The tired feet of those who walked the dusty roads of Montgomery helped a nation see that to which it had once been blind. It is because of these men and women that I stand here today. It is because of them that our children grow up in a land more free and more fair, a land truer to its founding creed."
