MLK Weekend at Brooklyn Children's Museum

Celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Saturday, January 15 – Monday, January 17

Join us to celebrate the life and legacy of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. through interactive performances, protest marches, community art programs, and volunteer projects!

Each day features shadow puppet performances and puppet-making with Nehprii Amenii, poster-making and protest marching with Brooklyn-based musician Fyütch, and the creation of a community dream cloud in BCM’s ColorLab art studio.

On MLK Day, Monday, January 17, participate in a volunteer project led by non-profit Repair the World where families will help out by packing diapers and baby essentials to be donated to Little Essentials. Little Essentials offers at-risk families access to children’s supplies & parenting education to promote the health and safety of their young children. This project is generously made possible by the UJA Federation of NY.
