WILTON, Conn. — Children can celebrate the life and achievements of Dr. Marin Luther King Jr. with activities Monday from the Wilton Historical Society.
A reading of "Martin’s Big Words: The Life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr." by Doreen Rappaport takes place from 11 a.m. to noon. Children also will make “Birds of Peace” as part of the event.
The day also will be marked for children with the final day of the Great Trains Holiday Exhibit. The activity is free with admission to the train show, which is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
King is best remembered as leading the African-American Civil Rights movement. As the son of a minister, he advocated through acts of faith and non-violence and was a passionate believer in education. In 1964, he was the recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize.
The Wilton Historical Society is at 224 Danbury Road/Route 7.
