Campaign for School Equity (CSE) is pleased to announce plans for a new book that will highlight Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s work in education reform. Published by CSE with support from the National Civil Rights Museum as part of the yearlong MLK50 commemoration, An Education Dream will use interviews, speeches, and photographs to pay homage to Dr. King’s belief in education as a fundamental component of equality. The book will chronicle Dr. King’s efforts to place education at the forefront of the American civil rights movement, provide historical context for contemporary education advocacy, and profile modern endeavors to make Dr. King’s dream of equitable education access for all a reality.
Scheduled for release in January 2018, An Education Dream will include historical facts, anecdotes, interviews, and never-seen-before photographs of Dr. King; speeches by both Dr. King and other education advocates and civil rights leaders; an analysis of the state of public education in the U.S. and in Memphis over the last 50 years; profiles of significant milestones and achievements in education reform; and an evaluation of modern setbacks that will help shape tactics as the education reform movement continues.
