Come and celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr Day at the Children’s Museum on Monday, January 16, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. This celebration marks the historic contributions of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr and the Civil Rights Movement with programs throughout the day:
King for a Day
11:00 am – 3:00 pm
Join kids and adults in reading aloud the speeches of Dr. King at the microphone in the “King for a Day” program hosted by The Saturday Light Brigade Radio Show. All ages are invited to take the podium at this annual event.
On Freedom Corner
12:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Freedom Corner, the historic corner of Centre and Crawford Avenues, is a symbol of the home of the Civil Rights Movement in Pittsburgh. You can use images from both the Pittsburgh and national movements, as well as your own ideas that you would fight for, to create a zine with guest artists, MAGIC ORGANS.
12:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Saturday Light Brigade Radio Productions presents a live 5-hour webcast exploring civil rights accomplishments, challenges, and dreams for the future. Hosted by area teens from throughout the region, Streaming Justice will originate from the SLB Radio studios in the Children’s Museum and feature music, conversation, listener phone calls and more, all of which will air live.
