Rarely in American history have we seen such a powerful orator as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. If you want to explain to your kids why we honor this heroic figure on Martin Luther King Day 2011, watch this video of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech. More than any Martin Luther King Jr. quotes or seeing the text of the speech, it explains why Dr. King’s legacy continues to influence us some 40 years after his death.
I get chills watching him deliver “I Have a Dream” and knowing that he has made this world better for our children. Watch Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech below. What do your kids think of this? Are they being taught about Martin Luther King Jr. at school?
