Happy Birthday, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Edgar Allan Poe!

In addition to being Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, today is the 200th anniversary of Edgar Allan Poe’s birth (quite a pair, we know!) Here are some selections available from RB that would be great to use in lessons on either of these great men.
