Description: This year's theme "Our Civil Rights" features performances by Encore Performing Art's Flying Ship Productions at 11:00 am and again at 1:00 pm of Rosa's Ride: The Life of Rosa Parks. This theatrical experience for young audiences follows the struggles of a young girl through the indignities of prejudice to discover her strength of conviction, as a simple act of civil disobedience gives birth to the civil rights movement. The program is suitable for students ages 5 and up. Students of all ages and abilities will have the opportunity to make "I have a dream ..." buttons and add their self-portraits to the Circle of Friends mural as well as explore the Museum's galleries and exhibitions.
