“I Have a Dream . . .”

8 Books about Martin Luther King Jr.

On Monday, we will be taking a day to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. and his message to America, pleading that our nation be united through love rather than hate. He pleaded that every individual be valued and recognized. He pleaded that all Americans would be given the right to freedom and the pursuit of happiness.

His work, along with the voices of many others, were catalysts to great change in our nation. Luther is a roll model to our children, modeling one acting on principle through love and conversation rather than a call to war.

As you discuss the life of Martin Luther King Jr. and his message of unity, take a moment to read a few of these powerful books with your class.
