Come honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King and learn about his work as a civil rights leader, an advocate for the poor and working-class, and his anti-war activism. Join us for storytime, art-making, and a museum scavenger hunt in the exhibition Activist New York to explore King’s role in the Civil Rights Movement.
