Our first Martin Luther King coloring page features one of Martin Luther King Jr.’s iconic quotes, “The time is always right to do what is right.” Sit down with your kids and together, come up with a meaning to this quote. For me, it translates as “it’s never too late to stand up to injustice.” This works best for older kids that are learning how to read and write.
2. Martin Luther King Jr. Coloring Page “I have a dream”
Our second Martin Luther King Jr. coloring page features the shadow of Martin Luther King Jr., along with his most notorious quote that was part of his powerful speech. Since this coloring page includes a simple shadow, you can color it as a single color, and then use bright colors for the quote.
