Download Materials for MLK Day and Black History Month

The day set aside to nationally honor Atlantan Martin Luther King Jr. is Monday, January sixteenth this year!  Fulton County Library System has a wealth of online resources to help celebrate this local Nobel Prize Winner. Some of our many options for downloadable content for the holiday include:

    • Access Video, and Access Video on Demand (AVOD) for Kids, and Kanopy all offer amazing recent documentaries as well as historical content!  Note that Access Video and AVOD for Kids fully integrate with Google classroom, often have lesson plans for download, and contain loads of historical footage from right here in Georgia. Kanopy offers more popular content, but each of these video platforms include clipping and citation tools for those wishing to incorporate quotes into essays, lesson plans, or presentations.

    History Documentaries from PBS are easy to find on Kanopy! FCLS library card holders and CLASS PASS users can have ten checkouts per month on the Kanopy platform with no charge. Use the citation tools to include quotes from interviews in your reports and essays.
    Looking for recent PBS history content for adults? Try Kanopy for ten checkouts of streaming content per month.
