Resource: "I Have a Dream" Activity - Learning About Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
In this activity, students will analyze census data and graphs that demonstrate how certain aspects of the lives of African-Americans have changed since civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech in 1963. Fourth and fifth grade students will select a fact from these data, facts from other sources, and a historical photograph to include on a poster about King.
