Martin Luther King Jr. - More Than A Dream

Few, if any, men have changed the course of history as much as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

DIRECTV GOES TO SCHOOL® and Discovery Education are honored to present classrooms with this special documentary - More Than A Dream - bringing first-hand accounts of the African American Civil Rights Movement to classrooms everywhere.

Through this documentary, which is chaptered for classroom use, your students will also get an up-close look at the recently dedicated Washington, D.C. Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial, honoring the late civil rights leader's contribution to world peace through non-violent social change.

We invite you to use these videos to engage your students in an active discussion on the civil rights movement and Dr. King's life and legacy.

Complementing the More Than A Dream documentary, we have created two classroom teacher guides. Used with the videos, these tools are designed to provoke an active and thoughtful dialogue with your students.
