Example (you can use the bold/underline/italics if you want, but it is not required):

“I have a dream…” said Martin Luther King Jr., in 1963. His dream of equality and rights for African Americans was one shared by many who came long before him. After the Compromise of 1877, Jim Crow laws took deeper and deeper root throughout the South. With the passage of Plessy v Ferguson in 1896, the dreams of former slaves and their descendants for true equality of citizenship – for actual freedom from economic disparity and racism – were dreams deferred, but never discarded. Despite entrenched opposition, the “long” civil rights movement actively worked to right the wrongs of Jim Crow throughout the early twentieth century. By 1965, the movement was very successful in achieving its goals, as seen through the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and the victories of grassroots activism in desegregating southern institutions.
