A place to land : Martin Luther King Jr. and the speech that inspired a nation / Barry Wittenstein ; illustrated by Jerry Pinkney.
"Martin kept refining: Painting with a preacher's fine brush, a light shade of wisdom here, a darker shade of frustration there, the darkest shade of "for whites only" everywhere. Martin Luther King Jr. was a preacher, a poet, and a brilliant orator, among many other things. The night before the 1963 March on Washington he sat down to write, with the voices and opinions of men he trusted echoing in his room at the Willard Hotel. Their thoughts, and the inspiration of so many artists and activists who came before him, contributed to the crafting of one of the most powerful speeches ever written, known today as the 'I Have a Dream' speech. In lyrical prose and strikingly illustrated by the renowned Jerry Pinkney, this is a book about Martin Luther King Jr. like no other."-- From dust jacket.
