I Have A Dream

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Award-winning artist Kadir Nelson created memorable and passionate oil paintings to illustrate Dr.King’s famous I Have a Dream speech. The book begins with the section that specifically mentions his dream: “I say to you today, my friends, that even though we face the difficulty of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream.” Scenes from the Lincoln Memorial and the March on Washington are depicted as well as the sweeping landscapes of New Hampshire and the snowcapped Rockies. The complete text of the speech is printed at the end with an accompanying CD. A fitting tribute published in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. Ages 5-10
