Since the U.S. celebrates Martin Luther King Day on January 15, I thought it appropriate this week to give you and your students the audiobook story of MLK from the brave beginning to the tragic end. I hope you find inspiration in the life of Dr. King, not because he was a man without flaws, but because he courageously sought to undo one of America’s greatest flaws! (The flaw of racial discrimination.) I hope you enjoy learning more about this American icon from The Mystery of History Volume IV (Lesson 71).
- Dr. King was born in… Atlanta, GA or in Memphis, TN.
- Dr. King was a voracious reader and so he was able in his youth to skip one grade level or two.
- Dr. King helped Rosa Parks boycott the segregated bus system in . . . Montgomery Al or in Huntsville, TX
- Dr. King led a civil rights campaign in Birmingham AL where blacks had been denied access to . . . gardening or public water fountains.
- Dr. King’s famous “I have a Dream” speech was . . . 7 minutes long or 17 minutes long.
- And last, Dr. King was assassinated in 1968 in Memphis, TN at . . . the historic Peabody hotel or the Lorain Hotel.
