Celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 

We want to recognize and celebrate the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  We encourage you to honor his legacy at home by:

  • Reading books about MLK, race & equality. Try this free audiobook library!
  • Watching MLK’s ‘I Have a Dream’ speech
  • Discussing your child’s dreams. 
    • What are their goals and aspirations? Sit down together and encourage them to write or draw their hopes on paper. Once done, hang the paper up where they can see it daily.
