I laid out ten cents for this book thinking that it was a biography of Martin Luther King, Jr. Instead, it turned out to be something far more beautiful. I Have a Dream contains exactly that – the famous speech Dr. King delivered on August 28, 1963 to gathered hordes of Americans. And even better yet, the speech is set off with the paintings of fourteen different artists who all wished to pay honor to Dr. King’s memory through their contributions.
Various people may argue over the degree to which the federal government should participate in disallowing discrimination, but none can deny that Dr. King’s speech – and entire life – are hallmarks in the history of the 20th century.
Conclusion. Adults will enjoy reading this superbly published book as much as children.
