Martin Luther King’s speech was that the Constitution, he interpreted it as a promissory note written by the Founding Fathers, that all men would be endowed one day by life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness. It wasn’t a reality in 1776, and it’s not yet a reality in 1963. But it’s a process, and up until now black people had been denied access. He said America had presented the Negro with a bad check, and that when we went to the bank of justice our check was returned, marked “insufficient funds.” But he said, “I just don’t believe that the bank of justice in America is bankrupt. I still have a dream, that someday…” And so it was in the context of economic deprivation and unfulfilled promises to people who were poor and black and immigrant that he said, “I still have faith in America.” And I think that’s still true today.
