Civil Rights Movement

(For the list of all history topics addressed by this blog, click here.)
For Elementary Students: We like the Scholastic Biography of Martin Luther King Jr. called I Have A Dream. We also get the book out for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.
I also really like the story called Sister Anne’s Hands. Sister Anne is the first black teacher that a young girl encounters, and it is beautifully illustrated.
A touching picture book to introduce the ugliness of racism to young children:
My Brother Martin, by Christine King Farris – a picture book about young Martin Luther King Jr:
For High School Students:
