Media Constructions of Martin Luther King, Jr.

This kit explores the ways in which King and his legacy have been portrayed in various media forms. The first lesson follows a chronology of King’s life through interactive decoding of rich media documents (comic books, billboards, songs, music videos, etc.). The following lessons use excerpts of Dr. King's speeches from 1963, 1967 and 1968 to examine his views on social change; explore the portrayal of King in magazine covers, advertisements, Web sites, film clips and monuments; and use letters to the editor about celebrating King to explore challenges to change.
