The Tubman Museum invites everyone to join us for a day of commemoration and understanding as we acknowledge the work and honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement.
Visit the Tubman Museum to view our collection of items related to African American art, history and culture, and learn about Dr. King and other Civil Rights advocates through related activities, engagements and special programs-of-the-day.
The agenda for the day will include the following:
• Drop-in Tours at 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
• Drum Circle at 12:30 p.m. in front of the Tubman on the Cherry Street Plaza, with follow up activities for both children and adults that highlight leaders like Dr. King and Fannie Lou Hamer.
• The African American Poetry Experience at 2:00 p.m. takes a look at how poetry was used during the Civil Rights era to express sentiments of the movement. We will look at prominent poems of the era and also find ways to connect and understand the use of poetry as it relates to the social justice movements of today.
• A variety of Civil Rights Speeches piped through the museum all during the day.
• DREAM Wall, where you can write and share your dreams.
Admission for Tubman Museum Members is free and a special discount rate of $5.00 applies to all non-members.
Registration is encouraged, but not required. To register or if you have any questions, please contact Tonja Khabir, Education Coordinator, at email@example.com or call (478) 238-0898.
