Everyone’s History

 

On Monday, January 16, people all over the world observed Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday. There are so many things that I could mention about Dr. King’s historical endeavors, but I’ll leave it up to you to learn, revisit, and teach them.  I’ll admit that I honestly thought about just using this day to take my son for ice cream and maybe Chuck E Cheese, but the longer I thought about it, I knew that we needed to make this day more productive than just hanging out. Some weeks leading up to MLK Day, my husband and I started talking to Braylon about history, civil rights, and just generally answering some of his lingering questions about the civil rights movements. We began this because his teacher started discussing Dr. King with his class back in December. His curiosity was now very peaked. I was happy about that because I enjoy history. She explained to the class where she was and her age when Dr. King was assassinated. Of course, us answering the questions about his assassination was difficult, but we felt that it was time to teach him about a small piece of everyone’s history. I decided that we would commemorate MLK Day 2017 without Chuck E Cheese, but with a visit to a museum instead. Check out the video  Image result for blue arrow
