"Our Friend Martin" DVD

This recommendation comes from Margaret Loveall:

"I thought you might like information about a great MLK DVD that I found several years ago while student teaching. It is called Our Friend Martin, and is perfect for grades 3-5. It is a cartoon story about MLK that includes real video footage. Every year my students love to watch this video and discuss the impact that MLK has had on their lives.

The DVD is available from Amazon for about $10.00. It is a great investment. I have attached the Amazon site so that you can read more about the video.

A cool thing about it is that all of the voices of the cartoon characters are famous celebrities like Whoopi Goldberg, Susan Sarandon, and James Earl Jones."
