The Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the U.S. Senate honored Martin Luther King Jr. by bringing his legacy to life with activities and programs for children and families. Guests learned about the history of the civil rights movement in Great Senate Debates: The Civil Rights Act of 1964, shared their own dreams for the future by contributing to the Institute’s participatory exhibit, and followed Martin Luther King Jr.’s example of public service by making Valentines for local veterans.
