This is a book that is the full text of Martin Luther King's speech. It is illustrated by Kadir Nelson. The main theme of the book is the hope for a peaceful interaction between anyone and everyone. Paired with colorful illustrations, the book is an enjoyable read.

I really enjoy this book. I feel like it does the original speech justice, and makes it more approachable for all readers. I think the speech is a powerful read with strong language. For example, I think it is important that various parts of the country are included in the speech.

I really enjoyed the illustrations. For example, they are all brightly colored. I find the bright colors to maintain the uplifting nature of the speech. I also find them detailed. They include idiosyncrasies of people's faces. It is an important historical read. ( )

Kadir Nelson is the only choice for illustrating this. ( )

To me, this speech is timeless. There will never be a time when we Americans are living the full realization of our U.S. Constitution, so every generation should be aware of the advice that MLK gives in this speech. ( )

Parts of the famous "I have A Dream" speech beautifully illustrated so as to make the speech come to life.

Nelson's magnificent illustrations rise to the majestic eloquence of MLK's words. Inlcudes the full text of the speech and a recording on CD. ( )
