It’s a day off from school for teacher and students alike, but tomorrow is a good day to remember Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., his rhetoric and the fight for civil rights two generations ago. Had he not been shot on April 4, 1968, Dr. King would likely have celebrated his 81st birthday last Friday. Here’re some online resources about the man and his mission.
• His famous “I have a Dream” speech given in front of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington is available on YouTube.
• A multitude of photos, videos, audio clips and background info about Dr. King, including him receiving the Nobel Peace Prize are all online at the King Center’s site.
• King celebrations can be done with kids reading his inspiring words from a collection of speeches available at MLK Online.
