This Newsy video serves as the starting point to discussions on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the Civil Rights Movement, and how far we as a nation have come since the speech was delivered in 1963. Students can then determine if there is still work to do in the area of civil rights.
This lesson can be completed in one 50-minute class period.
