January 20, 3:30 pm.
Included with admission: $22; $17 seniors; $13 student; $6 ages 5-13; free admission ages 4 and younger

Celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day by reading Martin and Mahalia: His Words, Her Song, written by Andrea Davis Pinkney and illustrated by Brian Pinkney. Both Martin Luther King Jr. and Mahalia Jackson were born with strong voices: his for words, hers for song, both for sharing the gospel of equal rights and justice for Black Americans. On August 28, 1963, Martin shared his “I Have a Dream” speech and Mahalia shared her music at the March on Washington, a day when thousands of people gathered together to work towards racial equality. After the story, make a microphone craft inspired by Martin and Mahalia’s powerful voices! Make a craft after the story.
