MLK Resources

The Martin Luther King Day holiday was celebrated last week on Monday, January 15, 2018. This blog has been posted on Tuesday, January 23, 2018. The life, teachings, works, and philosophies of the Rev. Dr. King should be present every day.

MLK resources are not in short supply. The King Center in Atlanta, GA offers a thorough website providing links it archived documents, a lengthy bibliography, and a “glossary of nonviolence”.

The Noble Prize website, which provides a page for every recipient, includes an illuminating entry regarding Dr. King’s 1964 Peace Prize. Audio and transcript of his Noble Lecture are featured, in which he states “[Violence] is immoral because it seeks to humiliate the opponent rather than win his understanding: it seeks to annihilate rather than convert. Violence is immoral because it thrives on hatred rather than love.” Video of his acceptance speech is also available.

Stanford University houses The Martin Luther King, Jr Research and Education Institute. Like the King Center, the Institute makes available on its website a searchable archive of King documents, resources, and bibliographies. It also includes resources regarding their Liberation Curriculum, which includes lesson plans and classroom resources.
