About This Lesson

The set of six lessons created for the documentary film King in the Wilderness offers an innovative approach to teaching historical reading skills and media literacy in one unique multi-media platform through the use of documentary film, first-person interviews, and historical photographs.

King in the Wilderness chronicles the final chapters of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s life, revealing a conflicted leader who faced an onslaught of criticism from both sides of the political spectrum. While the Black Power movement saw his nonviolence as weakness, and President Lyndon B. Johnson saw his anti-Vietnam War speeches as irresponsible, Dr. King’s unyielding belief in peaceful protest became a testing point for a nation on the brink of chaos.
