Another Side of MLK, Jr.

One of the problems with our US textbooks is that there are too many facts and not enough stories which is why I enjoy using primary documents to teach US history.  But the video above is why it is nice to teach the last one hundred years because you can get some more personal narratives such as the clip above from Martin Luther King, Jr.'s driver as he moves around and shows you places that MLK drove that didn't make the history books.
