Repetition part 2
He repeats the phrase "Let freedom ring" He carries on repeating this is makes his point more clear by doing this it gets his message across and in this case it's to free African-Americans from the "chains of discrimination" (He also uses metaphors)
Context
The Civil Rights movement took place between 1954 and 1968 and the goals were to end racial segregation. It is also referred to the African American civil rights movement;many famous people such as Martin Luther King and 35th President - John.F.Kennedy did speeches to support this act to end racial segregation these speeches have helped bring equality to America and stopped African-Americans to be treated poorly and treated different from white people in America. It secures the rights they deserve and the privileges they deserve.

to join hands and get along in peace,and how he wants to end racial segregation. It worked in the end and really helped the United States become equal.
Civil Rights
MLK Uses Repition
One of the most obvious reasons as to why his speech is so famous is because he uses loads of repetition such as "I have a dream" he uses it to connect with his audience. Short simple sentences like "I have a dream" are packed with power that can connect with the audience. It also makes his point more clear and because it's short and simple it stays in the audiences head-this is why this speech is very memroible and famous
So let freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire;let freedom ring from the snow-capped Rockies of Colorado; let freedom ring...
EXTRACT
Theme

this could link to the fact he wants African-Americans to be free and lead a 'prodigious' lifestyle like White people living in America. Prodigious has connotations to great and immense. African-Americans were treated poorly and unfairly in the past basically the opposite of a great lifestyle.
Summery
