The protest known as the March on Washington was one of the most inspiring episodes of the civil rights movement. Galvanized by events in the South, civil rights protesters from around the country gathered in Washington, DC, to demand Congress pass President Kennedy's civil rights bill. More than a quarter of a million people showed up to the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. Among the speakers was Martin Luther King Jr., whose "I Have a Dream" speech became one of the greatest orations in American history. This exciting graphic novel uses dramatic illustrations and accessible text to capture the emotion and power both of the march itself and of King's memorable speech.
