In partnership with Beacon Press, we've created a series of six lessons as a companion to A Time to Break Silence: The Essential Works of Martin Luther King, Jr., for Students. This lesson, Young People Working for Justice, focuses on the role of youth during the modern African American Freedom Struggle. The activities encourage students to envision their role in creating a just world.
