"Out of the mountain of despair, a stone of hope." -M.L.K Jr. From the "I Have A Dream" speech in Washington, DC on August 28, 1963.
This week is a celebration of the life of one of America's greatest leaders, Martin Luther King Jr. Martin Luther King was an advocate for peace, and social justice during a time of great tension, and difficulty in the United States. His message of justice, tolerance and diversity is still relevant today. MLK had a dream for humanity, and the Children's Museum Houston invites you to share in that dream with our Dream Big WonderWeek. Join us the week before Martin Luther King Jr. Day, in celebrating the life and legacy of this great hero with a week full of inspiring activities.
