What Was the March on Washington? Paperback – Illustrated, February 7, 2013
by Kathleen Krull (Author), Who HQ (Author), Tim Tomkinson (Illustrator)


On August 28, 1963, more than 200,000 people gathered in Washington, DC, to demand equal rights for all races. It was there that Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech, and it was this peaceful protest that spurred the momentous civil rights laws of the mid-1960s. With black-and-white artwork throughout and sixteen pages of photographs, the March is brought to life!
