The Westport Historical Society will host children for a fun-filled day of activities relating to Martin Luther King Jr. Nicole Carpenter, Education Director, will facilitate activities that celebrate the legacy of Dr. King as a champion of human rights, justice and equality.

His powerful words continue to inspire, teach and shape people throughout the world. In this program, children will be able to express their own feelings about respect, kindness and peace for all beings. Children’s creativity will shine as they discover important figures from MLK’s movement, including Rosa Parks and President Lyndon Johnson, through a variety of art projects! They will make their own dream cloud showing their hopes for the future, based on King’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech.

Children will play old fashioned games, explore the Wheeler House, and eat a snack enjoyed by the civil rights activists. Celebrate the positive influence of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with hands-on activities, personal expression and gratitude for his messages of hope and peace. Please bring a bag lunch.
