Building A Community

The Eugene McDermott Library provides resources that offer in-depth and relevant perspectives on the sense of community that Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke of in his historic “I Have A Dream” speech. A minister and Civil Rights activist during the 1960’s, he delivered the speech at the Lincoln Memorial during the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom on August 28, 1963. King spoke of a community of love, social justice, and unity that could one day be realized, not just in the United States but globally. Many groups and associations continue to work towards the actualization of this dream.
