This amazing shirt pays tribute to one of the most prominent and inspiring leaders of the American Civil Rights Movement. The shirt displays a portrait of the famous minister and activist, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and it also includes the message "the dream lives on". Dr. King is best remembered for his fight against Jim Crow laws and other forms of discrimination, as well as his dedication to enacting change through nonviolence and civil disobedience.
The phrase the "dream lives on" gives a nod to what was easily Dr. King's most famous speech. The charismatic leader was known for being an inspiring orator, but King's "I Have a Dream" speech is the address that is most often discussed. Given during the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom in 1963, King was the last speaker to address the crowd that day, and his rousing speech wound up being a defining moment in the fight for civil rights. Although Dr. King was assassinated just a few years later, this shirt celebrates his lasting influence on American history.
