Free program: Martin Luther King Jr. symposium, a day of creativity, dialogue and entertainment

Many local schools will be closed on Monday January 18 in celebration of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, so what's a parent to do? Luckily for children in K-12 grades there is a wonderful all-day program being offered at the University of Michigan.

On Monday January 18th from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. the University of Michigan will be hosting it's 24th Annual MLK Symposium. Parents can drop off kids ages 5-18 for a day of age-appropriate stories, games, musical performances, and activities to commemorate the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and its significance today. Kids age 4 and under may also attend, however they must be accompanied by an adult. A free lunch is provided to all participants.

The program takes place on the 1st and 2nd floors of Modern Languages Building (812 E. Washington, Ann Arbor). Pre-registration is strongly encouraged and can be done by visiting the program website. For more information call 734-764-0567.

The 24th Annual MLK Symposium is sponsored by the School of Education, School of Social Work & Office of Academic Multicultural Initiatives.
