2017 MLK Project
Read With Me MLK Project.jpg

As an extended learning opportunity, and in preparation for Black History Month, or National African American History Month (February), The Pine Creek High School Library Learning Commons would like to invite students and staff to read, discuss, and respond to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "Letter from a Birmingham Jail."

 

"Written in 1963, and often labeled the most important document of the civil rights era, the letter which emphasizes the inter-connection of social ills and their healing, is also a rallying call to action in the time of violent racial tension and division, and remains timely."

 

How to participate:

1) READ/LISTEN to the letter.

        •  Audio provided by Stanford University here (MLK actually reading the letter)
        • Abridged version of the letter here.
        • Unabridged version here
        • Original version of the letter here
        • Digitally annotated version provided by Stanford University here.

2) DISCUSS: A document containing themes and discussion questions can be found here.

 

3) CREATE: When you're done discussing–create something! Write a letter, a song, a poem, or create some other form of art based on what you've read and discussed. This can be done individually or in small groups.

 

4) SHARE: Send a link to a video of you reading your letter or performing your poem, a picture of your artwork, or the link to the blog post you wrote about your experience with the PCHS Library Learning Commons via email (sasha.miller@asd20.org). Artwork can also be submitted to the envelope on Ms. Miller's door in the Library Learning Commons.


PRIZES: Prizes awarded for best video, best poem, best song, and best artwork!
