Martin Luther King, Jr.

The video above, created by a US History student, showcases many excellent photos of Dr. Martin Luther King and includes voice over of King’s “We shall overcome” speech. Before heading out for the three day weekend, be sure your students know why Monday is observed as a national holiday.

The full version of King’s “I have a dream” speech is, of course, available on YouTube and is 17 minutes and 28 seconds long. King Institute Projects – One of the best, most comprehensive MLK resources available. (If viewing in January, be patient as page loads may take longer.)
