Clarence B. Jones discusses new book at Brennan Center for Justice
On March 16, Clarence B. Jones, a scholar-in-residence and visiting professor at Stanford University’s Martin Luther King Jr. Research and Education Institute, discussed his new book, Behind the Dream: The Making of the Speech that Transformed a Nation, at the Brennan Center for Justice. In the 1960s, Jones worked closely with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and helped write the famous "I Have a Dream" speech. The book, co-written with Stuart Connelly, is an insider's account of the intense weeks leading up to that memorable moment at the Lincoln Memorial. The center's chief counsel, Frederick A.O. Schwarz Jr., moderated the event.
