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.

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"
