Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” Speech Visual Analysis Video


When I was studying in college as an under-grad, I analyzed Dr. Martin Luther King’s letter from a Birmingham Jail and was so moved by the power of how he used words and metaphors so effectively and almost artistically.

Below author, educator and speaker Nancy Duarte analyzes Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech using principles from her book, Resonate.” I found it from David Erickson’s e-strategy who got it at Vimeo via Duarte Design. (Thanks David) 🙂 There is poetry in how words and metaphors can make intentional points. Nancy does a great job at explaining how this was done.

Interesting information about Dr, King. He skipped his freshman and senior year of high school so he could attend Morehouse College at the age of 15. He originally planned to become a medical doctor. Instead, his education was as follows:

  • B.A. from Morehouse in Sociology
  • B.A. from Crozer Theological Seminary in Divinity
  • Phd from Boston University in Philosophy and Systematic Theology

      My pleasure, thanks for responding! I used to train sales people how to plan and deliver seminars – story telling is always a piece of that which is why I loved your video so much! 🙂 I appreciate the comment.
