March On!: The Day My Brother Martin Changed the World


Written by Christine King Farris, Illustrated By London Ladd

Almost everyone is familiar with MLK’s famous “I Have A Dream” speech given at the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom in August of 1963.  But what led up to that March and what went on during that day?  How did MLK write these important and inspirational words that motivated so many people during the struggle for civil rights and beyond?

The story of the March on Washington is told beautifully by MLK’s sister; Christine King Farris, who gives you a behind the scenes look at the events of that important day when so many people stood up for change that would be as powerful as it was positive.

Although this book was written especially for younger readers, it is highly recommended for anyone interested in the civil rights era or anyone who wishes to be inspired by MLK’s nonviolent means of achieving his vision of peace, justice and equality for all people.
