Cartoon for ‘I have a dream’ anniversary

Posted on: August 29, 2013

It’s 50 years since civil rights leader Martin Luther King’s famous ‘I have a dream’ speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington.  This cartoon also features in this month’s topic of the month, but I thought it could have its own post on such an auspicious anniversary.  Although it must be said, my take on it doesn’t have the optimism and fighting spirit of the original utterance.  But true though it might be, I’m choosing to believe it’s only one bit of who we are in contemporary times.  Will post a change the world cartoon soon.

    Love it. Says a lot about who we are today, “Yeah that’s nice but I did this”. Media lets us think that we all have a voice and we all have to use it now. There doesn’t seem to be much listening, look at our politics.

      Agree. Glad you like the cartoon. I actually did it in th 90s, and it’s become ever more pertinent.
