#SpotThePAW at the Indiana State Museum MLK Day Celebration!
January 20 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
IndyHumane will join the Indiana State Museum in honoring Martin Luther King Jr. Admission and parking will be free the entire day, and each visitor is encouraged to bring a canned good to be donated to Gleaners Food Bank of Indiana. (Not required)
Indiana State Museum visitors will see the Senate version of the 13th Amendment, one of only three copies signed by senators as well as Abraham Lincoln. The museum’s copy of the Emancipation Proclamation is one of only 48 copies signed by Lincoln and sold to benefit wounded soldiers in 1864. Only 25 copies survive today. These copies are among the greatest treasures in the Lincoln Financial Foundation Collection and are not often on display at the museum due to their delicate nature.
Throughout the museum you’ll also see highlights from Dr. King’s most iconic speeches, help create a “Dream” mural, and reflect on what you can do to ensure the dream lives on. You’ll also explore activities pertaining to civil and human rights, including writing thank you notes to Dr. King, creating your own protest poster, reflecting on images from society, and considering what issues you would march for.
