This companion site to a PBS special focuses on the last five years of Dr. Martin Luther King's life, from his "I Have a Dream" Speech in 1963 to his assassination in 1968. Highlights include a discussion of his non-violence philosophy, video perspectives, an interactive map of civil rights hot spots throughout the United States, several links to interactive timelines, and a teacher's guide. Several of the timelines focus on King's entire life (not just the final five years). This is a great resource for a 20th century American history class. This site requires Flash. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.
