On August 28, 1963, a remarkable event took place—more than 250,000 people gathered in our nation's capital to participate in the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. The march began at the Washington Monument and ended with a rally at the Lincoln Memorial, where Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his historic "I Have a Dream" speech, advocating racial harmony. When combined with simple yet compelling illustrations, this book brings that day to life for even the youngest reader to experience.
