Inspired by the popular Who Was…? series, the What Was…? titles focus on key events that have shaped history: great battles, protests, discoveries, and revolutions!

On August 28, 1963, more than 200,000 people gathered in Washington, DC, to demand equal rights for all races. It was there that Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech, and it was this peaceful protest that spurred the momentous civil rights laws of the mid-1960s. With black-and-white artwork throughout.
