2.en.06 MLK Day celebration

Today is the third Monday in January and in the US they celebrate Martin Luther King day.

We are also going to celebrate by listening to a song that will help us understand who the man was and the things he did.

Listen to the song and:

  1. Copy the chorus in your notebook
  2. Find a word meaning separation
  3. What did people do to stop the situation in public buses?


Some of the words in the song come from a famous speech Martin Luther King gave on 28th August 1963 at the Lincoln Memorial, Washington DC:

Martin Luther King, Jr Delivering His "I Have a Dream" Speech

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.”

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

I have a dream today!
