"I Have a Dream" Relating to Society Today - in "I Have a Dream" Form
"I have a dream my four little children will one day live in a nation
where they will not be judged by the color of their skin
but by the content of their character."
--Martin Luther King, Jr.
Most of us have heard Martin Luther King's I Have a Dream speech, or part of it, at some point in our lives. In 1964, one year after the speech was given, Lyndon B. Johnson signed Executive Order 11246, which signaled the birth of affirmative action. Affirmative action refers to efforts to increase educational and employment opportunities for minorities and women. In November, 1997, California voters did away with affirmative action [at the state level] by passing proposition 209. They were convinced that it was no longer needed, that it gave minorities and women special rights.
