Dr. King's lecture on the occasion of his award of the Nobel Peace prize in 1964 has elements that still resonate in the political structure of today's world. Try this resource as part of a study on non-violence, civil rights, or government. The document is longer than some students might like, but it is not difficult reading. The site also includes a two minute sound recording that requires RealPlayer. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): africa (180), african american (113), civil rights (117), martin luther king (37)

In the Classroom

Since this speech (document) is so lengthy, why not break it down into several lessons. Have students dissect the words of King. What still holds true in the 21st century? What has changed?
