Martin Luther King: Words That Changed a Nation

In what may become a tradition, CNN re-aired the program, "Martin Luther King: Words That Changed a Nation" hosted by Soledad O'Brien this year in the days before the January 22nd observance of the of the Martin Luther King holiday.

Last year, when the King paperswere purchased, Soledad and a CNN crew went back to some of the places connected to the papers and made the writings of the Dr. King come alive.

The collection includes documents such as the "Letter from the Birmingham Jail" in Dr. King's own handwriting and many stories surrounding that and other writing in the collection.

CNN also has created a companion site with teaching guides and PDF copies of some of the documents referenced in the documentary that should be especially useful for educators.
