Civil Rights Movement Resources
I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain
shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will
be made straight, and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall
see it together.
-Reverend Martin Luther King Jr., August 28, 1963
