How to Make MLK Day Meaningful for Children Today

Thought this was a good article on how to keep MLK Day relevant for your children. As we get farther and farther away from historical events like the civil rights movement it gets harder and harder to keep these memories alive for the future generations. I remember learning about MLK in school, it is the same sentiment my mothers generation has to ours, how do you teach these things to children who never lived through it. I think about this alot in regards to 9/11. My daughter will only ever know that day as she sees it in her history book in school, she will ask me one day where I was and what I was doing...and I will tell her every min, because I will still remember even then, as my aunt and mother could do with MLK day and the Day President Kennedy was assassinated.
