Martin Luther King events

To celebrate the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the Children’s Museum of Manhattan (CMOM) will offer a series of special events and activities during the holiday weekend, including a daylong celebration on MLK Day (Monday, January 20). The Children’s Museum of Manhattan, located at 212 West 83rd Street between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue, is usually closed on Mondays.

From 10am to 4:45pm, the Martin’s Mosaic activity will allow children of all ages to honor King’s memory by creating a mosaic of his portrait using recycled materials.

At 10am and 1pm, with the Little Artists: Community Instillation activity, kids can decorate a temporary installation inspired by King, who believed that “Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve.” At 2 pm and 3:30 pm, children can learn how King inspired many great leaders during the Civil Rights Movement by participating in Heroic Heroines: Ruby Bridges through her book, “Ruby Bridges Goes to School: My True Story.”

In addition, on Monday, January 20, at 3pm and 4pm, there will be a live jazz performance by The National Jazz Museum in Harlem’s All-Stars Band celebrating the life and work of King.

Furthermore, the museum’s book of the week is “My Daddy, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.” by Martin Luther King III
