The Story of the Civil Rights March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom in Photographs

Series: The Story of the Civil Rights Movement in Photographs

By David Aretha

On August 28, 1963, more than 250,000 people descended on Washington, D.C. They came by bus, car, and bicycle. Some even walked hundreds of miles to be there. On that day, the massive crowd gathered to march, protest, sing, and support the Civil Rights Movement and to demonstrate that the time had come to end segregation in the South. To a captivated audience, Martin Luther King, Jr., spoke of his "dream," when African Americans would have equal rights. Through vivid primary source photographs, author David Aretha explores the "greatest demonstration for freedom" in American history.

"These informative books are moving photographic displays of the peaks of the civil rights movement."

The Horn Book Guide, Fall 2014

"The books dramatically carry the reader from early 1963 Birmingham to sit-ins, marches, and protests. Through dramatic photographs along with descriptive captions, the reader feels the raw emotions of the times."

Library Media Connection, November/December 2014

"The black, white, and red design give the book a slick, professional look...these books nonetheless provide a nuanced, well-organized perspective on the time period."

School Library Journal, August 2014

"…information is concise and accurate…relays information in an orderly and historically precise manner…This book is highly recommended for any middle or high school library, as it will relate well to young readers. It is also an excellent research tool."
