Summary, Etc. "From Martin Luther King Jr.'s 'I Have a Dream' speech to today's discourse on social media, Americans have used their words as tools to fight for civil rights. This beneficial book introduces students to words that defined a movement and the notable leaders behind them. Written to support social studies curricula, this volume presents history through the perspectives of the people who were there. Readers learn about the civil rights movement, historical and contemporary leaders, and the impact they have had on society. Primary source images, compelling quotes, and significant sidebars and fact boxes create a comprehensive reading experience"--Provided by the publisher.
