MORE Small But Mighty Storytimes
Since 2017, the Museum has presented its Small but Mighty Storytime for Young Activists and Families. With the recent pandemic, the museum’s Education Department is delivering this program online with virtual book readings by museum K-12 Educator, Dory Lerner. The sessions are a time to explore new interests, discover exciting places, and learn history while at home and engage young minds. Dory will introduce principles of nonviolence and peace, encourage friendship and discuss activism. As she reads stories aloud and demonstrates fun activities, her goal is to realize the potential in young listeners to help make the world a better place.
At the Lorraine Newsletter
As we continue to adjust to the changes happening in our communities and lives in this quarterly newsletter, we are reminded of lessons learned from the Civil Rights Movement: understand the issues, ask the question “is this just,” and be persistent and tenacious in seeking justice.
