Description
Change. It happens slowly.
One
small
step
at a
time.


Important moments in African American history have occurred at the Lincoln Memorial: Marian Anderson's concert in 1939; Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s famous speech in 1963; and a visit in 2009 from the first black president and his family. This book interweaves these key events with the story of black Americans' struggle for equality.
