- ["Film documents a speech given by Martin Luther King at Stanford University on April 14, 1967 about racism and civil rights in American society. Dr. King contends that there are \"two Americas\": one \"beautiful\" and the \"other America,\" which is an \"arena of blasted hopes and dreams.\" He goes on to explain that \"we are seeking to make America one nation\" and discusses: African American civil rights; segregation; slavery; civil rights bills; the need for \"genuine equality\"; housing; education; employment; his experiences in Chicago; social and racial inequality; the persistence of \"white backlash\" against the constitutional rights of minorities; non-violence; \"massive action programs\"; social stagnation; the Vietnam War; sharing of political power and legislating for social justice. He concludes by stating that: \"I still have faith in the future. I still believe these problems can be solved ... I refuse to despair ... our destiny is tied up in the destiny of America.\""]
