We Have a Dream

During MOT Family Sunday on January 17th and Martin Luther King, Jr., Day on Monday, January 18th, Museum of Tolerance visitors participated in activities in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  Visitors created MLK, Jr.- inspired board games and detailed their dreams for the future on the MOT “Dream Wall.”  MOT visitors attended performances of Living Voices:  The Right to Dream, a unique combination of theater, video and live interaction that brings the struggle for Civil Rights to life, and viewed Mighty Times:  The Children’s March, a Southern Poverty Law Center film documenting the group of children in 1963 Alabama who marched to end segregation.  During MOT Family Sunday, local artist Demar Douglas created a paint-by-number portrait of MLK, Jr. and Museum visitors used paints to complete the portrait, which is on display in the Museum of Tolerance.
