I believe many of us can articulate what transpired that day if not from memory, from history lessons and books. However, only a select few, those in King's inner circle, like Jones, can truly provide that rare glimpse into what transpired in the days leading up to, during and after the March on Washington.
In Behind the Dream we learn of the secluded haven procured for King to allow him to focus and prepare for the March, the collaborative efforts (of sorts) in creating the I Have a Dream speech, the influence of A. Philip Randolph, the last minute copyright efforts and much more.
The book's title couldn't be more apropos.
Why did he wait so very long with these never known and only now told revelations? No serious seat of learning's library worldwide should be without this rewarding and enjoyable work. Thank you Professor and Bravo!
