After you attend one of the several MLK parades (discussion for another day) head over to the Rothko Chapel (located here) and actually listen to the words of Dr. King. It can not be said enough that words matter (hello President Elect), and Dr. King was one of the best at using his voice and words to express the feelings of Black people in our country.

Given the current social and political climate, this is a great opportunity to reflect with your family on why activism is so important and to explain that Dr. King was more than his speeches. He was a grassroots freedom fighter who was jailed numerous times, received hundreds of death threats, and was STILL able to overcome that to see significant changes go into law before his untimely death.

This event is completely free and open to the general public.
