1. How persuasive do you think King's speech is?
2. What specific aspects of the speech make it so?

A:
1. I think the King's speech is highly persuasive, given the fact that it influenced the Federal government to take more direct actions to more fully realize racial equality.
2. In Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech, rhetorical strategies such as analogies, parallelism, and restatement render it persuasive. For instance, the most widely cited example of parallelism is found in the often quoted phrase "I have a dream..." which is repeated eight times as King paints a picture of an integrated and unified America for his audience.
