Martin Luther King, Jr.: I Have a Dream  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You'd have to watch this beforehand to know what age this is appropriate for, but allowing older children to see the speech as it was given makes it come alive. 

 

This video's description says it has other footage as well.  I saw a video a few years ago that had the speech but also included scenes of quiet protests that were disrupted by violence, fire hoses on people, etc., so I'd recommend previewing this one before showing it in a classroom, library, etc. I don't know what the other footage on this DVD contains.
