Praise

“Euchner has turned the March on Washington into a ‘people’s history.’ Compelling and dramatic, this book is an important contribution.”—Juan Williams, author of Eyes On The Prize and news analyst for NPR and Fox News
 
“A sharp, riveting depiction of what Martin Luther King called the greatest demonstration for freedom in the nation’s history.”—Kirkus
 
“The March on Washington was a demand to make the Constitution of the United States work for black people—to cash the blank check, as Dr. King put it that day …Euchner’s superb book brings it all back in vivid detail.”—Roger Wilkins, author of Jefferson’s Pillow
 
“‘We must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force,’ said King near the end of the long, hot day. Euchner’s dignified book reflects that kind of power.”—James Sullivan, The Boston Globe
 
“The pages crackle and vibrate with the voices of unsung heroes who drove, flew, rode buses and trains, hitchhiked, even walked long distances to be there in the Great Emancipator’s stone shadow as Dr. King spun out his immortal ‘Dream.’”—John Egerton, author of Speak Now Against the Day
