MLK Jr. Day + Black History Month Activities

Celebrate Black History


Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a black minister, became the leader of the Civil Rights Movement. He spoke out for equal rights for African Americans, and organized nonviolent protests to protest unfair laws and bring attention to the cause. Examples of nonviolent protests included boycotts, marches, and sit-ins, where demonstrators took seats in public places and remained there until their requests were addressed. Dr. King wanted all people to work together for the common good of America.

Take time this month to teach your students about the impact that Martin Luther King Jr. and the Civil Rights Movements had on America.
