This eye-opening book presents Dr. King’s famous speech in modern, accessible language.
What did Martin Luther King, Jr., mean when he said, "seared in the flames of withering injustice" or "the tranquilizing drug of gradualism"? Now, kids can read Dr. King’s important speech in words they truly understand. "And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream" becomes "We face problems today. We will still face problems tomorrow. Still, I have a dream." In addition to the original and "translated" versions of the speech, a short history of the events surrounding the civil rights movement is included.
