Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is an iconic figure of the Civil Rights Movement in the United States. Celebrate Dr. King’s birthday with several activities. You can also see the jail cell door key from his Birmingham jail in the America I Am exhibit at Union Station. His “Letter from Birmingham Jail” was penned from this cell.

Youth participants will learn poetry and explore how to take inspiration and transform it into creative pieces of art in either of two 90 minute sessions with nationally recognized performance poet Glenn North and acclaimed artist and children’s illustrator Shane Evans. At 2 p.m., explore the stunning history of the Pullman porters with rail historian Pete Hansen inside the Rail Experience exhibit.

      In every person...

      In every person who comes near you look for what is good and strong; honor that; try to imitate it, and your faults will drop off like dead leaves when their time comes.

      -- John Ruskin (1819-1900) English Art Critic
