This year we celebrate and honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. storytelling, crafts and activities all focused on celebrating Dr. King’s life and teachings, both virtually and in-person. Throughout his life, Dr. King worked to achieve equality in America by fighting against racial discrimination. Join Explore & More as we honor the life and legacy of the iconic civil rights leader and celebrate themes of diversity, equality, freedom and resistance.
As part of celebrating Dr. King, we ask guests to bring and donate mittens, hats, or socks that will be distributed to the children residing at Gerard Place, from January 16th-23rd. Either drop off in-person or purchase from our Amazon Wishlist and the items will be shipped directly to us.
