I would like to write, or actually tell you about the American Dream and how it began.
It all began with a very special woman her name was Rosa Parks, she refused to give up her seat to a white man in Montgomery, Alabama in 1955. Rosa Parks helped initiate the civil rights movement in the United States. After the movement started, the leaders of the local black community organized a bus boycott.
The boycott began the day Rosa Parks was convicted of violating the segregation law and lasted for more than a year. By that, Rosa Parks became a nationally recognized symbol of dignity and strength in the struggle to end racism.
Martin Luther King he was also and nationally recognized symbol of dignity and strength in the struggle to end racism. Martin gave a speech in 1963, about racism and about having a dream to become a successful and strong person.
The phrase Martin used the most in his speech was ‘’I have a dream,’’ that exact phrase became a worldwide phrase that helped a lot of people to see that there was more to life itself, and that you could become anything you wanted.
The idea of The American Dream is that anyone, regardless of where you were born or what social class you were born into can achieve their own version of success and happiness, and also that everybody should be treated and seen equally and be accepted by others.
The American Dream is about taking chances and making sacrifice for one’s own beliefs and dreams, so you have to put in the work before you can accomplish anything.
