This book is very good because it shows the struggles many African-Americans faced during the Civil Rights Movement and how one man decided to stand up and speak for those who were silent. I think all children should know who Martin Luther King Jr. is and his speech even though it may be difficult to understand, the pictures make it more of a doable read. ( )

This is a beautifully illustrated book of Martin Luther Kings August 28, 1963 speech at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC.

The art work is beautiful! The message, of course, will live on for generations.

I enjoyed this book for a few reasons. The information provided is important for children to learn, but it is delivered in a child-friendly way. The illustrations help the story flow. The big idea is to help children learn about Martin Luther King, Jr.'s vision for America. ( )

I didn't really read this Kindle book but read the text online after watching the speech on YouTube.

Martin Luther King Jr. is one of my heroes, and it seemed appropriate to listen & read his words today in honor of his memory on MLK day. Sadly, so much is still apposite 50+ years later. This passage in particular struck me:

"We can never be satisfied as long as the Negro is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality."

In the intervening years, this aspect of racism doesn't seem to have improved very much as the events of the past 6 months have shown. I just hope that people recall this earlier section from the speech:

"But there is something that I must say to my people, who stand on the warm threshold which leads into the palace of justice: In the process of gaining our rightful place, we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again, we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force." ( )

Review: I loved reading this story. It was full of information and inspirational words. There are paintings that are in the story which adds a nice touch to make it enjoyable to look at while you read.

Summary: This story is about the speech that Martin Luther King Jr. made on August 28, 1963. It is known as one of the most powerful and memorable speeches in history. This book was written by his daughter Bernice A. King.

Argument: I really liked reading this historical book about the speech that Martin Luther King Jr. made. I have heard the speech before but never knew the background knowledge or what happened on that day. I think that children of all ages would like to read this book because it is full of information.
This story teaches the reader about equality, freedom, and peace. ( )
