Publisher's Summary

In 1963 Dr. Martin Luther King led the March on Washington and spoke the famous words ""I have a dream."" Then 18-year-old Producer Askia Muhammad was, as he recalls, 'sleeping through the dream.' Growing up in Los Angeles, Muhammad was far away from the civil rights uproar and any self-proclaimed political consciousness. Now 40 years later, Muhammad revisits his youth with two close friends from his youth, former Olympic Gold medal track athlete Richard Stebbins and Howard University journalism professor Clint Wilson. Join us for the journey of a young man's political awakening during a time of intense social unrest.
