On August 28, 1963, something quite amazing occurred. On the day, one of the largest political rallies ever took place in support of civil and economic rights of African-Americans and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. gave one of the most stirring speeches in history, when standing in front of the Lincoln Memorial, he delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech.

This book is a celebration of the 50th anniversary of this address and includes narrative and more than 100 captioned photos of the American Civil Rights movement. The photographs come from Bob Adelman, one of the most notable photographers of this movement. His work has been featured in Time, Newsweek, and the Associated Press. It is authored by the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), an organization in which Dr. King served as the first president.
