Description

Support the community by participating in service projects on MLK Day. At the Museum, create a “Share Your Dreams” poster with artist K.O. Simms, and glaze a bowl for Empty Bowls, benefiting the food pantry at St. Stephens Lutheran Church. While you’re at the Museum, take a tour of Black art, watch performances by the Wilmington Children’s Chorus, and hear remarks by Andrea McCoy-Carty, Chair of the Judy Johnson Memorial Foundation and Chandra Pitts of One Village Alliance. In the afternoon, take your poster to the MLK March organized by Westside Grows. We also encourage participation at our partner’s event, Annual Raising Kings Day of Service at the Freedom Center located at 31 W 31st Wilmington.
