This 21 minute documentary is still the best Martin Luther King/civil rights video for middle and high school students I’ve seen. It's short and to the point, yet powerful. This is not your typical documentary. Information is conveyed only by sound bites of King himself and through short onscreen titles. The soundtrack is the best. This is perfect to video to add to your Civil Rights Movement Unit or just right before or after Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Video questions are very short and very easy to answer, so your students can concentrate on the video. I play this video for all of my classes right after MLK Day because it is so good and the class discussion that follows is rich.
Warning: the N word is used in this video.
