Join Us on Monday, January 19, 2015 to Celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Tackling King's Triple Evils:
Poverty, Racism, and Militarism  

"The Triple Evils are forms of violence that exist in a vicious cycle. They are interrelated, all-inclusive, and stand as barriers to our living...when we work to remedy one evil, we affect all evils" (Six Steps for Nonviolent Social Change). This MLK Day the ICRCM will help tackle King's Triple Evils.
1. Poverty
The ICRCM will host a canned food drive from 10:00am-4:30pm. Please bring all canned food items to the International Civil Rights Center & Museum, 134 Sout Elm Street. Proceeds will be donated to the Greensboro Urban Ministry. Guests of the museum who donate five (5) or more cans will recieve $2.00 off their admission rate for a guided tour.
2. Racism
The Guilford Anti-Racism Alliance will host a panel discussion, "Are We Still Dreaming?" addressing the feasibility of Dr. King's dream in this century and how the dream should be or has been altered to ensure equality for all. Discussion begins at 2pm. Free; Suggested $5.00 donation.

3. Militarism
Join us for a community discussion on "Police: Partners for Change", as we discuss ways the community and law enforcement can continue to partner to improve our neighborhoods and community relationships. Discussion begins at 3:30pm. FREE; Suggested $5.00 donation.

Teaching Our Kids to Dream  

In the wake of numerous headlines where young lives are targeted, have our youth been robbed of their dreams for a better tomorrow? Just as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. dreamed of a harmonious nation, our youth too deserve such a dream. Join the International Civil Rights Center & Museum for youth orientated activities centered around Dr. King's "I Have A Dream" speech that will educate, encourage, and embrace today's youth to dream of bright futures for themselves and their communities.
The program is one hour long, starting at 1pm. Last program begins at 4pm.

Admission FREE with Donation of 3 Canned Goods
