    My introduction/commentary

    Please see below a few brief comparisons of some of the words and themes Martin Luther King Junior used in this seminal speech. Much more — a thousand things — could be said about each paragraph, each sentence, each phrase which he so beautifully and effectively spoke that warm Summer day.

  • […] Chiastic outline of Martin Luther King, Junior’s “I Have a Dream” speech […]

  • I remember how this chiasm was discovered. I am pleased to say that this chiasm was one of the very few I personally discovered. As with most the important things I discovered… it was through my children. I bought the children’s book “I Have A Dream”. While reading it to my son I noticed the reoccurring themes of the Davidic Chiasm.

  • I brought the book to Jared and asked him to read it and tell me if he saw what I saw. He was very impressed with the eloquence, beauty and symmetry in this inspired speech given by Martin Luther King. He began decoding and deciphering this chiasm immediately. It was strait forward and pure, very easy to see.
