A Call to Conscience: The Landmark Speeches of Martin Luther King, Jr. New York: IPM/Warner Books Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., is known for being one of the greatest orators of the twentieth century, and perhaps in all of American history.

This companion volume to A Knock at Midnight features the landmark speeches of his career, including: "I Have a Dream"; his acceptance speech for the Nobel Peace Prize; his eulogy for the young victims of the Birmingham church bombing; and "I've Been to the Mountaintop," the last speech he gave before his death. Also featured in this text are introductions from world-renowned defenders of civil rights, who, reflecting on their own experiences, explain how they believe Dr.

Women and Social Movements in the United States, 1600-2000 Trump talte til den amerikanske nation dagen efter frifindelsen i rigsretssagen – her er, hvad han sagde Derfor bringer Berlingske præsident Trumps tale – uforkortet USAs præsident, Donald Trump, undgik forleden den skæbne at blive fjernet fra sit embede. Men afstemningen i Senatet udstillede, hvor splittende en figur Trump er: Med undtagelse af den republikanske senator Mitt Romney blev rigsretssagen afgjort langs de samme linjer, som skiller demokrater og republikanere. Situationen i Amerika er følgende: De, der er for Trump, er bandsat for ham. De der er imod ham, er bandsat imod ham. Når præsident Trump ikke vil give formanden for Repræsentanternes Hus, Nancy Pelosi, hånden, som tilfældet var før Trumps State of The Union-tale forleden nat, og når Pelosi efter talen rev den i stykker bag præsidentens ryg, da er det tegn på et demokrati, som trænger til et lægebesøg. Torsdag efter frifindelsen i rigsretssagen stillede Trump sig op i 75-80 minutter og talte til sine støtter. Og så er der den republikanske præsident Donald J. Af og til skal ordene i den forbindelse bare tale for sig selv.

Religion and the Founding of the American Republic | Exhibitions This exhibition demonstrates that many of the colonies that in 1776 became the United States of America were settled by men and women of deep religious convictions who in the seventeenth century crossed the Atlantic Ocean to practice their faith freely. That the religious intensity of the original settlers would diminish to some extent over time was perhaps to be expected, but new waves of eighteenth century immigrants brought their own religious fervor across the Atlantic and the nation's first major religious revival in the middle of the eighteenth century injected new vigor into American religion. The result was that a religious people rose in rebellion against Great Britain in 1776, and that most American statesmen, when they began to form new governments at the state and national levels, shared the convictions of most of their constituents that religion was, to quote Alexis de Tocqueville's observation, indispensable to the maintenance of republican institutions.
