On August 28, 1963, Martin Luther King, Jr., electrified the nation when he delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. In The Dream, Drew D. Hansen explores the fascinating and little-known history of King's legendary address. The Dream insightfully considers how King's speech "has slowly remade the American imagination," and led us closer to King's visionary goal of a redeemed America.

Drew D. Hansen traces the speech's path to immortality in The Dream, a swift-moving and plainly written examination of King's speech, the events leading to its composition, and ways in which Americans' assessment of it changed in the decades that have followed. — Jabari Asim
