This podcast is part of the series: Living Museum Podcasting Project: Famous Americans come to life!

Vestavia Hills Elementary East
This podcast is the final project of an in depth research project on Famous Americans. Each student chose which famous American to research. They all read a biography, researched their person using the AVL or other online resources and wrote a 1-2 page report. On a designated day, our "Living Museum" was opened and these characters came to life. Each child dressed as their famous American and came to school to give a speech to friends and family about the important events of their life. We hope you enjoy this podcast and learn more about the life of Martin Luther King, Jr.
