Dream Like a King is a tribute design to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. He was a great leader of a huge undertaking – a quest for racial equality in a segregated and racist South was no easy task. His achievements didn’t reach the reality of his dreams during his lifetime, but the dreams he laid out motivated many.

Dream Like a King Design Statement: Activist, Humanitarian, Leader, and Clergyman, Martin Luther King Jr. had a profound impact on America in a turbulent time of our nation’s history. He was a leader of ideas and action with an eloquent voice of nonviolence and positive change and thus a threat to our nations establishment. While MLK received the Nobel Peace Prize for his nonviolent work toward racial equality, he was the focus of secret FBI counterintelligence operations with the goal to stop his social impact. Though his life ended tragically early, many of MLK’s goals were achieved and the dreams that MLK lived by have been an inspiration to many.
Martin Luther King is an exceptional orator, communicator and leader. He is best known for his I have a Dream speech, but there are many beautiful, inspirational, and powerful speeches that came from Dr. King. It’s been nearly 50 years since MLK began his great career. Though his career ended tragically early at only 39 years old, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a man with massive dreams and amazing follow-through. MLK alone was one of thousands of great leaders involved in social change during a tumultuous time in American history. Dr. King worked with many great men and women, but his ability to orate and communicate for nonviolent social change separated him from the other leaders of his time. Martin Luther King Jr. audio speeches can be heard on MLK Out Loud and NPR archives.
