“I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be.” Martin Luther King, Jr.
The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s vision of unity, equality, and judging our fellow Americans by who they are and not by the color of their skin — touched people of all races and ethnicity.
After 50 years, it was both what he said and how he expressed himself that still distinguishes Dr. King as an iconic speaker, allowing his messages to resonate with people of all ages.
Dr. King did not rely on a teleprompter; in fact much of his speech was ad lib. He spoke from his heart and the gut.
Remember, being who you are, believing in your message, as well as authentically and passionately sharing with listeners will ensure you connect with your audience and inspire action!
