Video Links: Includes links to videos of biographies on MLK, recorded readings of books about MLK, The full I have a Dream speech, etc. Videos vary in age appropriateness. I wouldn’t consider any of them inappropriate, but younger children might not get much out of watching the full I Have a Dream Speech. Many of them mention his assassination and at least one has a picture of the balcony that appears to be after he was shot. My students didn’t seem to notice it.
