The Speech

The Story Behind Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s Dream

BY GARY YOUNGE

Brief Description:
This short and gripping book has four chapters: The Moment, The March, The Speech, The Legacy. It is based on new and important interviews with Clarence Jones, a close friend of and draft speechwriter for Martin Luther King, Jr., as well as Joan Baez, Angela Davis, and other leading civil rights leaders. It brings to life the fascinating chronicle behind "the speech" and other events surrounding the March on Washington. Younge skillfully captures the spirit of that historic day and offers a new generation of readers a critical modern analysis of why "I Have a Dream" remains America's favorite speech.
