This pictures are beautiful and do a wonderful job of putting the speech in context. They keep the situation of time in your mind while also giving hope for the future.

This beautifully illustrated book with paintings by Kadir Nelson, will mesmerize readers as they read the words of the famous speech by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in Washington D.C. Images share all of the people who traveled far and wide to listen with hope and inspiration. Young children of different races hold hands and dance in celebration. One image shows Dr. King up close with his mouth wide shouting words everyone needed to hear. Parents and teachers should use this tool to share Dr. King’s speech and how he inspired a nation to come together in peace and unity.

This beautifully illustrated book features art from fifteen Coretta Scott King honored artists, that accompany the original text of Dr. Martin Luther King's famous "I have a dream" speech. It is important that we revisit this text because, even fifty years later, King's dream has still not been achieved. Racial justice is still unequal, and despite the progress we HAVE made, people of color still face storms of persecution and police brutality. The themes of this speech are still echoed in our time, from the Black Lives Matter movement to the campaign slogans of Michelle and Barack Obama. Deal-makers beware, the people of America will not accept a bad check. We continue to refuse to accept that the bank of justice is bankrupt (and no amount of deregulation will convince us otherwise).

One of King's best known speeches, the "I Have a Dream" speech is combined with powerful paintings of Kadir Nelson in this brilliant picture book. Nelson's paintings help convey significance of Dr. King's message while at the same time making the book more accessible for younger audiences.
