The African American Museum of Iowa invites you to join us on Monday, January 21, 2019 for a celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
The Museum will be offering discounted admission at $1.00 per person from 10 am to 4 pm to honor Dr. King. In addition, the Museum is celebrating Dr. King’s message of peace by collaborating with Veterans for Peace Chapter #169 to create and decorate Peace Poles. The Veterans for Peace have made it their goal to put up as many Peace Poles as possible in the area and the Museum is supporting this goal by inviting patrons to help decorate Peace Poles on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day while they visit the Museum. The Museum will supply the poles and supplies, all we need is you and your creative ideas! Join us January 21 for learning, reflection, and crafting in celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., his vision of integration, and his teaching of peace.
