In the speech — which was delivered in early May 1966 and echoes other speeches of the era — King says:
"Let us march on ballot boxes ... so men and women will no longer walk the streets in search for jobs that do not exist. ...
"Let us march on ballot boxes until brotherhood is more than a meaningless word at the end of a prayer, but the first order of business on every legislative agenda. Let us march on ballot boxes. ...
"Let us march on ballot boxes until every valley shall be exalted, till every mountain and hill shall be made low, until the rough places are made plain and the crooked places straight and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed. ...
"Let us march on ballot boxes until we are able to send to the statehouses of the South men who will do justly, love mercy and walk humbly with their God. Let us march on ballot boxes."
