Sound Learning Feature for February 2005
From American Public Media's American RadioWorksThis month we revisit a special from American Public Media's American RadioWorks.
When the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.'s I Have a Dream speech is broadcast each February to mark Black History Month, the magnetic cadence of his words is almost impossible to resist. King was a remarkable orator, but he was hardly alone. He was nurtured in a centuries-old African American tradition of spoken narrative and oral persuasion. Sound Learning's February feature takes this tradition and puts it in an academic context, illuminating students to the profound effect African American oratories have in our shared history.
The articles in this month's feature are of particular interest to teachers and students of American history, political science, and civics.
