Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday Videos Overview

Hi, these are great short videos all under 4 minutes, to overview the civil rights era in the USA during the late 1950’s up to the mid 1960’s.  It finishes with MLK jr’s famous “I Have a Dream Speech.” (17 minutes)

These are for discussion purposes to build background knowledge for why we celebrate MLK Day.  Then we will read the last 2 minutes of his speech that i googled from somewhere, about 1.5 pages.

Then we will discuss and compare discrimination and racism in USA vs. home countries.
