The Flint Institute of Arts, in partnership with the Flint Public Library, will present a celebratory program of the life and work of Dr. Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. on Monday, January 15, 2018 with free, family-friendly activities and events in both spaces.

The joint program begins at the library at 1 p.m. with a family-friendly "Peace Hands" craft project and includes a keynote speech from Isiah Oliver, President and CEO of the Community Foundation of Greater Flint, a reenactment of Dr. King's "I Have A Dream" address, and a musical performance from vocalist Adam Baker. The remembrance will move from the FPL to a reception at the FIA from 4-5:30 p.m. The reception features a step performance by the Gamma Delta Kudos and the Kappa Leadership League. Light refreshments will be served. Additionally, the FIA Art School will incorporate peace, justice, equality, and change for people everywhere—symbols associated with Dr. King—into its Free Family Activity from 4-6 p.m.

In conjunction with the MLK holiday, FIA galleries will be open and free of charge for all visitors throughout the day. For more information about the festivities please call the Flint Public Library at 810.232.7111 or the Flint Institute of Arts at 810.234.1695.
