Saturday Children's Story Hour
Saturday, April 19 at 11 a.m.
Join dynamic leaders in our community as they conduct a story hour at 11 a.m. on Saturdays. After the stories, children will complete their very own make-and-take arts activity. All books are written for children, and are geared toward ages 5-12. At least once a month, one of the books will focus on healthy food choices and fitness activities. In this way, ICRCM, along with 500 other cultural organizations, participates in First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move: Museums & Gardens, an initiative aimed at reducing childhood obesity. The Saturday Children’s Story Hour is generously supported by a grant from the Gannett Foundation.
Letter From a Birmingham Jail:
What is Its Relevance Today?
Saturday, April 19 at 2:30 p.m.
During the April 1963 campaign against racial segregation in Birmingham, Alabama, Dr. Martin Luther King was incarcerated. From a cell he penned an open letter to his critics—members of the clergy. The widely published letter served as a key point of reference in the Civil Rights Movement of that day. In it, King defended nonviolent resistance to unjust laws, asserted that "injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere," and asked whether we will become "extremists" for hate or for love.
More than 50 years later, does this document hold relevance for us today? Join an engaging discussion on activism and social change in twenty-first century America led by: Rev. Reggie Weaver, Pastor, Westminster Presbyterian Church, Greensboro, NC Dr. Love Crossling, Director, Human Relations Department, City of Greensboro, NC Dr. Wayne Moore, Professor, School of Social Work, NCA&TSU and UNCG, Greensboro, NC
Admission Fee: Adults: $6.00 Students: $4.00 Museum Members: Free

A message to our generous supporters.
We opened our doors on February 1, 2010— more than three years ago. During this short time ICRCM has garnered a stellar reputation for promoting an understanding of the struggles for social justice and equality in the United States and across the world. In fact, through ICRCM, we link Greensboro to the world. We thank you for standing beside us, boosting our morale, and providing much needed financial support. And we ask that you continue this journey with us in the coming months and years.
We invite you to commit to furthering democracy and freedom through the work of the ICRCM. Before the end of 2013, please donate to show your endorsement of ICRCM’s efforts in your community.
With profound gratitude for your support, let us simply say “Thank you.”
