Campionamento dell'ultimo discorso di MLK, inframezzato da Amazing Grace

MLK


Martin Luther King nel suo ultimo discorso pubblico prima del suo assassinio parla alla sua gente con una forza trascinante e alimenta il sogno di libertà a cui ogni uomo aspira, con parole coraggiose e il timbro sicuro di un eroe contemporaneo.
But somewhere I read of the freedom of assembly.
Somewhere I read of the freedom of speech.
Somewhere I read of the freedom of press.
Somewhere I read that the greatness of America is the right to protest for right.

And so just as I say, we aren't going to let dogs o
r water hoses turn us around,
we aren't going to let any injunction turn us around.

And I've seen the Promised Land.
I may not get there with you.
But I want you to know tonight,
that we, as a people, will get to the promised land!

And so I'm happy, tonight.
I'm not worried about anything.
I'm not fearing any man!
Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord!!

Somewhere I read of the freedom of assembly.
Somewhere I read of the freedom of speech.
Somewhere I read of the freedom of press.
Somewhere I read that the greatness of America is the right to protest for right.

Amazing grace how sweet the sound
that saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now I’m found
I was blind but now I see.
And I've seen the promised land

I may not get there with you.
But I want you to know tonight,
that we, as a people, will get to the promised land!

And so I'm happy, tonight.
I'm not worried about anything.
I'm not fearing any man!
Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord!!

somewhere I read of the freedom of assembly.
Somewhere I read of the freedom of speech.
Somewhere I read of the freedom of press.
Somewhere I read that the greatness of America is the right to protest for right.
