On August 28, 1963 more than a quarter of a million people participated in one of the country's largest political rallies for human rights. The event was the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom and is best remembered for an iconic speech delivered by Martin Luther King Jr. that has come to be known as "I Have a Dream." But after 50 years MLK's dream of economic equality is still far from realized, showing a huge gap between black and white Americans. Why is his dream unfinished or ever impossible? His speech begins "I say to you today, my friends, 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...."  The idea of the American Dream is rooted in the United States Declaration of Independence which proclaims that "all men are created equal." Nevertheless, it is a common thought that the American Dream is a set of ideals in which freedom includes the opportunity for prosperity and success, and an upward- social achieved through hard work. In other words, it has been conceived as more likely economic freedom. For many immigrants, the Statue of Liberty was their first view of the United States, signifying new opportunities in life. The statue is an iconic symbol of the American Dream. The irony is here. The Statue of Liberty, dedicated on October 28, 1886, was a gift of friendship from the people of France to the U.S. and is a universal symbol of freedom and democracy. But in the U.S. the ideas of freedom and democracy have been associated with individualism and laissez-faire economics that became the idea of American dream, which was far away from MLK's vision.
