Publisher Comments:

In a starred review, Kirkus Reviews raves, "An award-winning artist captures the passion and purpose of this most notable 20th century American speech.... A title for rememberance and for re-dedication to the dream."

On August 28, 1963, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial during the March on Washington, Martin Luther King gave one of the most powerful and memorable speeches in our nation's history. His words, paired with Caldecott Honor winner Kadir Nelson's magificent paintings, make for a picture book certain to be treasured by children and adults alike. The themes of equality and freedom for all are not only relevant today, 50 years later, but also provide young readers with an important introduction to our nation's past.

From Dr. Bernice A. King: “My father’s dream continues to live on from generation to generation, and this beautiful and powerful illustrated edition of his world-changing ‘I Have a Dream’ speech brings his inspiring message of freedom, equality, and peace to the youngest among us—those who will one day carry his dream forward for everyone.”

Review:

"There's something exhilarating about viewing Nelson's (Heart and Soul) paintings of Dr. King and the March on Washington while reading the words of the speech King gave that day; it's hard to imagine a better representation of their historical significance. Nelson pictures King in front of a forest of microphones, his brow furrowed with concentration. 'I have a dream today,' he repeats as Nelson shows him in sharp profile — it almost seems possible to feel the warmth of his breath. 'With this faith we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together,' he continues, accompanied by a painting of two clasped hands, black and white. Though it's a clichéd image, Nelson's up-close rendering of the hands gives the picture startling freshness. American landscapes glow, and schoolchildren of every color look viewers in the eye, full of confidence. The speech is lightly edited in a way that makes it understandable for children of any age; a CD of the speech is enclosed. A glorious interpretation of a bedrock moment in 20th-century history. All ages. Agent: Steven Malk, Writers House." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
