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 rights. And so just as I said, we aren’t going to let dogs or water hoses turn us around. We aren’t going to let any injunction turn us around. We are going on.
From the speech “I’ve been to the mountaintop” by
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
April 3, 1968, at the Mason Temple in Memphis, Tennessee
