“I Have A Dream” Dr Martin Luther King Jr. Day Workshop for Kids
Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream was to see people of all countries, races, and religions living together in harmony. His ‘I have a Dream’ speech was delivered on August 28, 1963 at the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial before a crowd of 250,000. Dr. King made references to our founding fathers and the Bible, maintaining a positive and uplifting tone. A famous passage includes, ‘ I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character’. His speech was televised and brought favorable exposure to the movement and the landmark passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. At this “I Have a Dream” Workshop for Kids, Museum Educator Katherine Karlik will have the kids listen to an excerpt from King’s famous speech, and talk about his vision – and their dreams for a better world. The workshop project is creating a small canvas banner, personalized with their dreams. The kids will help make their own snack.
