An Important Martin Luther King Jr. Michigan Link

Students in my History classes will be analyzing excerpts of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech next week after viewing the speech. I was just made aware of an important link "I Have a Dream" has to Michigan civil rights history--it was given in Detroit two months before the March on Washington.

This activity will touch upon several of my goals for my students--primary source analysis, 20th Century History analysis, and Michigan History analysis.  The link below contains opportunities for examining and comparing King's written words and spoken words related to the March on Washington:
