"An exile in his own land"

It is the 48th anniversary of the "I Have a Dream" speech by Martin Luther King.
King at the Lincoln Memorial 
Let us not wallow in the valley of despair, I say to you today, my friends. 
And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. 
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal."
The whole speech is at the link.
