Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
On Wednesday, August 28, 1963, Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his "I Have A Dream" speech, which became world renown, before a crowd of more than 200,000 people attending The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. The famous, peaceful march from the Washington Monument to the Lincoln Memorial took place at the height of the Civil Rights movement. This 48-page reference for elementary and middle school students is part of the "World Almanac Library of Landmark Events in American History." The book follows the series' engaging format, telling the story of the march from its roots in slavery and segregation through its legacy today, as personified by achievements of African Americans serving in leading positions in the presidential administration of George W. Bush. An introduction first explains the Civil Rights March of 1963 and its historical context. Then follow five short chapters addressing the history leading up to it, from slavery to segregation, the Civil Rights Movement, planning the march, the day of the event, and its aftermath, including the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the King assassination. As with other books in the series, a "conclusion" section characterizes how the march is remembered now, and why it was and is still important. Photographs, maps and original source materials supplement the text. Page layout integrates artwork and boxed passages about related subjects, including, for example, the 1866 Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution, and information about some of the people who have played significant roles in the Civil Rights movement. The book also includes a timeline, glossary and resources for further research. 2005, World Almanac Library, Ages 8 to 14.
