In January 2019, the African American Museum in Philadelphia and Citizens Bank invite audiences to join us for a full weekend of enriching, fun, inspirational, family-friendly activities, as we explore the relationship between current and historic social justice movements, and the news media through a series of programs occurring on MLK Day and throughout the preceding weekend. During The African American Museum in Philadelphia’s annual MLK Weekend Celebration, residents and visitors can enjoy a special film screening, a jazz presentation with vocalist and composer Ruth Naomi Floyd, a scavenger hunt, a keynote conversation between journalists Stephanie Renee and Alejandro “Ali” Danois, access to the museum’s current special exhibit, Cotton: The Soft, Dangerous Beauty of the Past, and more. Bonus: The museum offers $2 admission from Saturday through Monday. Visit https://www.aampmuseum.org/mlk.html for details.
