BAM is hosting the 37th annual Brooklyn tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King on Monday, January 16th for all ages. This year with a special kids programming all day!
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. encouraged us to use time creatively, saying that “the time is always ripe to do what is right.” Knowing that courage takes creativity, this family-friendly program co-curated with the BAMkids Parent Advisory Circle immerses young people in art forms that have been important expressions of social justice movements. Art has helped raise awareness, build community, and challenge power structures. Throughout the day, families can drum, dance, craft, color, and even put themselves in moments of civil rights history from Dr. King’s lifetime. Ideal for ages 6 to 11 from 10.30 to 3 pm, find out more here.
Join the BAM for this beloved Brooklyn tradition for grown-ups, which rings in a new year with music, performances, and an urgent and timely call to action—Defending Democracy—led by keynote speaker Sherrilyn Ifill. This event will run from 10.30 – 12.20 pm, find out more here.
