Martin Luther King, Jr. speaking

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

Every February, the U.S. honors the contributions and sacrifices of African Americans who have helped shape the nation. In celebration of Black History Month, the Libraries offer a selection of books about the Civil Rights Movement.
