In 1963 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gave a speech that proclaimed that it was time - long overdue - for all men to be treated as equals. Today his beliefs are more important than ever, and author Jane Kurtz explains Dr. King's words in language even the youngest reader can understand.
This kid-friendly interpretation of Dr. King's I Have a Dream speech presents the great man's philosophy and message in a way that is understandable to young readers, and that celebrates the vision that has inspired Americans for more than 40 years. Full color.
