Providence remembers Martin Luther King, Jr.

December 28, 2013 by  

Martin Luther King Day is coming up on January 20 and, as with last year, the Providence Children’s Museum will be using this as a way to educate children about his life and legacy.

The museum is usually closed on Mondays but will open for this special event. It is set to feature a display of photographs, books, and the worlds of Dr. King. There will also be interactive activities in which to take part.

Storytellers Rochel Coleman and Valerie Tutson will be on hand to share some tales, and are also set to present a performance of their play ‘MLK: Amazing Grace’, which pays tribute to King and other Civil Rights activists as Rosa Parks and Ralph Abernathy. It is sure to be a learning experience for the children, as well as their parents, and it is recommended for children aged 5 and up.

To advertise this upcoming event, it is possible that local printing companies will be providing posters or flyers to help spread the word to nearby communities, such as Johnston. Flyers are one of the most effective forms of marketing since they can be distributed in so many ways, such as direct mail or door-to-door distribution.

The Celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. will take place on January 20 from 11:30 am – 4:00 pm. Admission is $9 per person or free to those aged under one year old. To find out more about the day’s events, call 401-273-5437.
