Rhetorical devices in "I have a Dream"

Summary of Speech
Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech was a call to all in the United States of America to end all segregation.
"My country 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing. Land where my fathers died, land of the Pilgrim's pride, From every mountainside, let freedom ring!"
This quote demonstrates ethos because, MLK took an ethical appeal to convince people to stand with him against segregation. By singing well known song that brings people together and earning even more respect.
"Demand the riches of freedom and the security of justice."
"Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred."
"With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood."
I really think with these quotes MLK was really trying to get across that coming together as a nation is the best way to end segregation. Starting with our children teaching them to be strong and come together and not judge other races. By teaching them at a young age children could all stand up and transform the United States for good.
"One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the changes of discrimination."
An example of the pain America see's through segregation. No matter what law we make or document we sign there is always going to be discrimination.
In my personal opinion I think we have come a long way with bettering the world through anti-segregation. Yes, there is and always will be people who have negative opinions against other elasticities, but coming together and changing are way of living by interacting with each other in school and public places is a huge step towards the equality that The United States stands on.
