Book Review
"Like A Mighty Stream", The March On Washington by Patrick Henry Bass, is a biography about black people who go on a march to Washington to declare their rights to have freedom once and for all. They had laws that were made by Jim Crow, a white representative, and he would give them laws that would make them get very mad and that would also start to cause alot of violence.

People from Chicago, from Detroit, from Montgomery especially,and other people all over

Recommended to Ruth by: Just bought and read it.
The March On Washington was when Dr. King Jr. did his speech "I Have a Dream".This book helped me understand a little more about the Civil Rights Movement. People from every race/walk of life was apart of this march and it change many life. I ready enjoyed reading this book. Would recommend it to school for and History or English classes and for pleasure reading.
This is an account of the March on Washington (1963 and before the March on Selma).It was where the I have a Dream speech took place. The book is full of interviews, photos, and eyewitness accounts.
Awesome book. Gave me insight into the March on Washington in 1963. Learned a lot.
