Description
"I have a dream." Everyone is familiar with these words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., but not everyone knows the struggle that surrounded them. In the 1950s, America was not a place of fulfilled dreams for the nation's black population. Widespread prejudice and segregation had left African Americans with fewer civil rights than other Americans. Bravely, the people did not remain quiet--a vibrant movement for civil rights began in the United States--one that would last for decades and would face innumerable challenges. "Speaking Out" is the story of America's extraordinary Civil Rights Movement.
