In 1865, Abraham Lincoln faced a difficult task rebuilding a nation recently united after The Civil War to abolish slavery. Nearly a century later, America was a society still struggling to endure as one nation free from the tyranny of racial prejudice.
From our Civil Rights Collection, this Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. ‘’Unity Print’’ is an image taken on August 28, 1963 during the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.
The bottom reads: ''When one person stands up, he is often not noticed; but when thousands stand up together they cannot be overlooked.'' Symbolic of the day Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his ''I Have a Dream'' speech in front of the Lincoln Memorial to an assembly of several hundred thousand Americans united and determined to create a country where people of all races could achieve peace and justice.
