There's no doubt that Martin Luther King Jr was one of the most influential figures of American history and the Civil Rights movement. In honor of his birthday on January 15th, you may want to engage in the following activities:


Family Day Celebration
Monday and Tuesday - January 20 and 21 - All Day
Bruce Museum

The Bruce Museum will recognize Dr. King with a dance performance on January 20th (11 am and 1 pm), a play performance on January 21st (11 am and 1 pm), and other activities such as making "I Have a Dream"  buttons and the making of self portraits for a Circle of Friends exhibit.

Oral History Project Redbooks
Greenwich Library

The Library has transcripts of interviews with such prominent African-Americans as Gertrude Johnson Steadwell, Alver W. Napper, Winston Robinson, and George Twine.  Ask the Reference Librarian for assistance.
