ROCK HILL, S.C. – Winthrop University will celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King with a 2010 King Day for Kids on Jan. 18.
Elementary school-aged children in the community are encouraged to attend to learn about the life and legacy of the civil rights and peace activist.
The free event begins at 10 a.m. at Dinkins Student Center and lasts until 1 p.m.
There will be a mock museum where children will participate in arts and crafts and will receive an "Inspiring Moments in African History" book as a keepsake. King’s life will unfold before participants as they witness different scenes including his young life and his inspiring “I Have a Dream” speech.
The children will then participate in a mock march to the residence halls where Resident Students Association will provide pizza. They will then return to Dinkins to be picked up.
Event sponsors are the university’s Center of Career and Civic Engagement, Multicultural Student Life and Resident Students Association. Winthrop students will serve as actors and moderators during the event.
