Description

On August 28, 1963, a remarkable event took place--more than 250,000 people gathered in our nation's capital to participate in the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. The march began at the Washington Monument and ended with a rally at the Lincoln Memorial, where Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his historic "I Have a Dream" speech, advocating racial harmony. Many words have been written about that day, but few so delicate and powerful as those presented here by award-winning author and illustrator Shane W. Evans. When combined with his simple yet compelling illustrations, the thrill of the day is brought to life for even the youngest reader to experience.

We March is one of Kirkus Reviews' Best Children's Books of 2012

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 28, 2011 – Written in the same spare style as Evans s Underground, this account of the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom identified only in a concluding note drives home the emotion and the drama of that event. Brief, blunt sentences propel the narrative and place readers on the scene: We follow our leaders. We walk together. We sing. Evans spotlights a family of four, first pictured rising with the sun and creating placards with their church congregation. Buses bring them to the Washington Monument, where they join others in the march that culminates in Martin Luther King Jr. s I Have a Dream speech. Though the day unfolds through the family s perspective, what emerges is a communal voice that conveys a strong sense of solidarity and purpose ( We lean on each other as we march to justice, to freedom, to our dreams ). Similarly minimalist, Evans s art features angular characters whose expressions capture their passion and commitment. Evans s predominantly cool palette is warmed by the diffuse light of the sun, which appears in full blaze behind a closeup image of King. A moving introduction to a historic day. Ages 4 8.
