I am planning on using the clip up until 42 seconds, and then editing in the part where he says "Let there be justice for all. Let there be peace for all." I wish I could do the whole part of this clip, but the full thing is 1:30 and that would just be too much.
Here is the part I'll be using:
"The time for the healing of the wounds has come. The moment to bridge the chasms that divides us has come. The time to build is upon us. We have, at last, achieved our political emancipation. We pledge ourselves to liberate all our people from the continuing bondage of poverty, deprivation, suffering, gender, and other discrimination....Let there be justice for all. Let there be peace for all."
Some Q & A about my chosen speech:
_ Who is speaking? Nelson Mandela
ABOUT NELSON MANDELLA:
Nelson Mandela was born on July 18, 1918, in Mveso, Transkei, South Africa. Becoming actively involved in the anti-apartheid movement in his 20s, Mandela joined the African National Congress in 1942. For 20 years, he directed a campaign of peaceful, nonviolent defiance against the South African government and its racist policies. In 1993, Mandela and South African President F.W. de Klerk were jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts to dismantle the country's apartheid system. In 1994, Mandela was inaugurated as South Africa's first black president. In 2009, Mandela's birthday (July 18) was declared "Mandela Day" to promote global peace and celebrate the South African leader's legacy. Mandela died at his home in Johannesburg on December 5, 2013, at age 95.

Here's the excerpt I'm using from his speech:
"THE TIME FOR THE HEALING OF THE WOUNDS, HAS COME. THE MOMENT TO BRIDGE THE CHASMS THAT DIVIDES US HAS COME. THE TIME TO BUILD IS UPON US. WE HAVE, AT LAST, ACHIEVED OUR POLITICAL EMANCIPATION. WE PLEDGE OURSELVES TO LIBERATE ALL OUR PEOPLE FROM THE CONTINUING BONDAGE OF POVERTY, DEPRIVATION, SUFFERING, GENDER, AND OTHER DISCRIMINATION ...... LET THERE BE JUSTICE FOR ALL. LET THERE BE PEACE FOR ALL."
Studying my speech:
the following picture shows the different emphasis/pauses during my clip. The words underlined are emphasized, the words boxed are emphasized around pauses and the stars show where the dramatic pauses occur.
Planning the flow:
The next part I cut up my speech and decided how it would flow best, and which words would work best on a spread based on the emphasis/pauses of the speech. Each line shown is a separate spread.
