They say dreams are manifestations of our inner thoughts and desires. Read inspiring dream quotes from famous Blacks.

And the dream we were conceived in will reveal a joyful face… and the world we once believed in will shine again in grace. Then why do we keep strangling life wound this Earth, crucify its soul. Though it’s plain to see, this world is heavenly. We could be God’s glow… Heal the world.

Michael Jackson, Heal the World


As you enter positions of trust and power, dream a little before you think.

Toni Morrison


Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.

Harriet Tubman


Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly.

Langston Hughes


I believe in wishes and in a person’s ability to make a wish come true, I really do. And a wish is more than a wish.. it’s a goal that your conscience and subconscience can help make reality.

Michael Jackson


I do feel, in my dreamings and yearnings, so undiscovered by those who are able to help me.

Mary McLeod Bethune


I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.

Martin Luther King, Jr., I Have a Dream


I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made straight and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all flesh shall see it together.

Martin Luther King, Jr., I Have a Dream


I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit together at the table of brotherhood.

Martin Luther King, Jr., I Have a Dream


I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed. We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal.

Martin Luther King, Jr., I Have a Dream


I used to dream. I used to glance beyond the stars. Now I don’t know where we are. Although I know we’ve drifted far. What about yesterday. What about the seas. The heavens are falling down. I can’t even breathe. What about the bleeding Earth. Can’t we feel its wounds. What about nature’s worth? It’s our planet’s womb.

Michael Jackson


I wake up from dreams and go “Wow, put this down on paper.” The whole thing is strange. You hear the words, everything is right there in front of your face.

Michael Jackson, Rolling Stone


If one is lucky, a solitary fantasy can totally transform one million realities.

Maya Angelou


Let us dream of tomorrow where we can truly love from the soul, and know love as the ultimate truth at the heart of all creation.

Michael Jackson


Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit. We are all the same in this notion: The potential for greatness lives within each of us.

Wilma Rudolph


No one should negotiate their dreams. Dreams must be free to flee and fly high. No government, no legislature, has a right to limit your dreams. You should never agree to surrender your dreams.

Jesse Jackson


No person has the right to rain on your dreams.

Marian Wright Edelman


Our dreams must be stronger than our memories. We must be pulled by our dreams, rather than pushed by our memories.

Jesse Jackson


We all have dreams. But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort.

Jesse Owens


We’ve removed the ceiling above our dreams. There are no more impossible dreams.

Jesse Jackson


What happens to a dream deferred? Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun? Or fester like a sore then run? Does it stink like rotten meat? Or crust over like a syrupy sweet? Maybe it sags like a heavy load. Or does it just explode?

Langston Hughes, Dream Deferred


What I know for sure is that it’s only when you make the process your goal that the big dream can follow. That doesn’t necessarily mean your process will necessarily lead you to wealth or fame. In fact, your dream may have nothing to do with tangible prosperity and everything to do with creating a life filled with joy, one with no regrets and a clear conscience. I’ve learned that wealth is a tool that gives you choices, but it can’t compensate for a life not fully lived and it certainly can’t create a sense of peace within you.

Oprah Winfrey, O Magazine


You can always dream, and your dreams will come true, but you have to make them come true.

Michael Jackson


You face the biggest challenge of all: to have the courage to seek your big dream regardless of what anyone says. You are the only person alive who can see your big picture and even you can’t see it all.

Oprah Winfrey, O Magazine


You must never stop dreaming. Face reality, yes. But don’t stop with the way things are; dream of things as they ought to be. Dream of peace. Peace is rational and reasonable. War is irrational in this age and unwinnable.

Jesse Jackson, Dream of Things as They Ought to Be
