A Movement's Soul

It is the 50th anniversary of Dr. King's "I Have a Dream" speech so I thought it was a good day to post this assignment.

The theme of the September issue of Cobblestone is also music. I got to illustrate an article about how singing helped to unite people during the civil rights movement in the 50's and 60's. 

Here is the first illustration. I had a lot of fun working on this one.

Here Is the second illustration which was a bunch of portraits of musicians and MLK of course.

The third illustration was for a separate article about the children who marched in Birmingham in 1963.
