Mandela i have a dream
I Have a Dream by Martin Luther King Jr.In 2019, I have noticed that my reading has had a bent toward civil rights. I have read about prominent African Americans including Condoleezza Rice and her parents, Carlotta Walls LaNier, and Ernie Banks. I have also read accounts of the 1960s, a turning point decade in American history where African Americans asserted themselves in their ongoing quest to achieve equal civil rights. I had not read a quality biography of civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr, yet, with my yearly reading schedule filling up, I knew that I would not have a chance this year. I decided to compromise by obtaining an illustrated version of the I Have a Dream Speech in time for the August 28 anniversary of the speech. With stunning illustrations by former Caldecott medal winner Kadir Nelson, this book is perfect for children and adults of all ages. It contains an audio cd of the original speech and is chilling to listen to. I have my 2020 reading lineup filling up and I would like to read a quality biography of Dr King. In the interim, this lovely coffee table book will more than suffice.
