The King Institute’s Liberation Curriculum provides document-based lesson plans, online educational resources and professional development with emphasis on the modern African American Freedom Struggle. Our resources aim to transform the way young people learn about history by focusing not only on King's visionary ideas, but also the work of ordinary people who made extraordinary contributions to liberation movements. 

Lesson Plans

Our lesson plans integrate primary and secondary sources encouraging youth to think deeply about the African American Freedom Struggle and current movements for justice.
