1963 March on Washington

NOBODY TURN ME AROUND offers the first comprehensive study of the 1963 March on Washington, where Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his iconic "I Have a Dream" oration. Author Charles Euchner interviewed more than 100 organizers and participants to create a portrait of the civil rights movement at its peak. Euchner also delved into archives all over the country, FOIA records, and long-lost audio and video records. The book has received excellent reviews from leaders and scholars across the country.
