There are many different interpretations of this dream. It could be that Rosaleen feels that Reverend King would be proud of that she stood up for herself and her rights.

The dream has religious symbolism , and the color red is prominent in the dream, as well. In a biblical sense, it is similar to the story of Jesus washing his disciple's feet. The color red and religious tone could also symbolize that Rosaleen has a premonition of Reverend King's coming death.
