Reviews and Notes

Summary/Annotation ->  The first collection of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s essential writings for high school students and young people-with eighteen selections including "I Have a Dream," "Letter from Birmingham Jail," and "What Is Your Life's Blueprint?" " Students are in reality standing up for the best in the American dream. . . . One day historians will record this student movement as one of the most significant epics of our heritage." -from "The Time for Freedom Has Come" A Time to Break Silence presents the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.?s most important writings and speeches-carefully selected by teachers across a variety of disciplines-in an accessible and user-friendly volume for students. Arranged thematically in six parts, the collection includes eighteen selections and is introduced by award-winning author Walter Dean Myers. Included are some of Dr. King?s most well-known and frequently taught classic works, like "Letter from Birmingham Jail" and "I Have a Dream," as well as lesser-known pieces such as "The Sword that Heals" and "What Is Your Life?s Blueprint?," which speak to issues young people face today.
