Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day: Life Every Voice

Monday, January 20, 2020
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM


This event has already occurred!

We will never forget Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's words and actions, or his impact as an activist, working to give a voice to all.  

Join us at the Museum to celebrate his life and further his mission.  All day long we will have hands-on activities, planetarium showings, music, performances and free health screenings. You and your family won’t want to miss this annual celebration!

Activities include:

10:45 AM Free Planetarium Screening: GOURD, every 30 minutes
For centuries people have relied on the wonders of the night sky to guide them safely. Join us as we explore how slaves used the Big Dipper and Polaris to find their way to freedom on the Underground Railroad. Created by local arts collective SQAD NWK. (Duration: 15 minutes)
