From the Back Cover:

"HIS LIFE INFORMED US, HIS DREAMS SUSTAIN US"

-from the Citation of the posthumous award of the Presidential Medal of Freedom to the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., July 4,1977

Martin Luther King's twenty most memorable writings and speeches are presented in this concise and convenient paperback edition. Among the famed civil rights leader's most influential words included here are the keynote address of the 1963 march on Washington: the "I have a Dream" speech, "Letter from a Birmingham Jail," the essay "Pilgrimage to Non-violence," and "I See the Promised Land," the sermon he preached the day before he was assassinated.

Editor James M. Washington has arranged the selections chronologically, providing keynotes for each selection that give a running history of the Civil
Rights movement and related events. In his introduction, Washington assesses King's times and significance. As Coretta Scott King points out in her forward, "with the publication of this edition of ' I have a dream: Writings and speeches that Changed the World,' we now have an accessible, yet representative anthology of Martin Luther King's writings"

MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR (1929-1968), civil rights leader and recipient of the Nobel Prize for Peace, inspired and sustained the struggle for freedom, non-violence, interracial brotherhood, and social justice.

JAMES M. WASHINGTON, professor of theology at Union Theological Seminary in New York City, is a leading authority on Martin Luther King, JR., and American religious history.
