King of America: The Dream of Equality
Part 1: Observation
Chapter four, “King of America: The Dream of Equality,” portrays how people were segregated based on their race and skin color before and after Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. The American dream was for all people to be treated equally regardless of their ethnicity, culture, race, skin color, and gender. However, even today, minorities continue to press hard when it comes to how they are handled by government institutions and organizations led by whites. In this chapter, the primary theme is equality.
