This video is 17 minutes long and may be too much for some children but let them at least watch the march at the beginning and see and hear the voice of Dr. Martin Luther King, jr. And do watch it yourself.

Here are more free audio resources for MLK day from Learn Out Loud:

I've Been to the Mountaintop
On this Martin Luther King Day, listen to Dr. King's final speech which he delivered the night before his assassination. In this prophetic speech Dr. King looks back over his life and thanks God that he was able to take part in the victories of the civil rights era.
He makes a passionate cry for nonviolence and freedom throughout the world, and confesses that no matter what happens to him that humanity will make it to the Promised Land. This speech is available on MP3 download and streaming audio & video from American Rhetoric.
I've Been to the Mountaintop
You can also download and listen to Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech and Robert F. Kennedy's "Remarks on the Assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr." on's Great Speeches in History Podcast (these two speeches are listed toward the bottom of the podcast feed).
