Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0766042383, Library Binding)On August 28, 1963, more than 250,000 people descended on Washington, D.C. They came by bus, car, and bicycle. Some even walked hundreds of miles to be there. On that day, the massive crowd gathered to march, protest, sing, and support the Civil Rights Movement and to demonstrate that the time had come to end segregation in the South. To a captivated audience, Martin Luther King, Jr., spoke of his "dream," when African Americans would have equal rights. Through vivid primary source photographs, author David Aretha explores the "greatest demonstration for freedom" in American history.
