Choose a song that has been used to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  There are several listed below but if you find another that has honored Dr. King you are welcome to use it.

Listen to the song, find the lyrics and read them, research the history or reason for the song.

Write a 1 page, hand-written, paper.  You may do this by yourself, in a group of 2 or 3.  Your paper will include, in your own words, some interesting historical facts about the song, how it relates to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and what it means to you.  *Do not simply write the lyrics on a piece of paper and do not copy what the internet says.
