This is a nice compilation of classic images from Martin Luther Kings speech but also for the entire civil rights movement.  These would serve as great teaching images to have the students analyze them as they would a piece of text to uncover the historical and sociological context.

Here are two articles that might change how you think about the past: the first discusses historical changes in vacations and holidays (we get less now than ever before) and the second discusses historical changes to sleeping patterns (1 8-hour stint is a new thing).  Somethings we erroneously assume that everything is better now than it used to be (or vice versa depending on the issue and your perspective), but the course of human history and is much more complicated than that.
