Martin Luther King Resources



Give your students a window into the Civil Rights movement and help them understand the extraordinary contributions of Dr. Martin Luther King with primary sources from the Library of Congress.  It is easy to begin with the resources found in the Today in History  at the Library. https://www.loc.gov/item/today-in-history/january-15

Peruse the classroom presentation, From Slavery to Civil Rights, on the Teacher Page: http://www.loc.gov/teachers/classroommaterials/presentationsandactivities/presentations/civil-rights/

As always, the Teacher Blog combines insight with links to primary sources: http://blogs.loc.gov/teachers/2017/01/a-man-to-remember-commemorating-martin-luther-king-jr/ and see the related blog post on Selma: https://blogs.loc.gov/teachers/2015/02/teaching-selma-a-civil-rights-struggle-captured-in-primary-sources/

The Civil Rights History Project at https://www.loc.gov/collections/civil-rights-history-project/about-this-collection/ also offers wonderful resources with which to teach the Civil Rights movement.
