Join PLGNA for the 10th Annual Dr, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Storytelling & Music Event! Featuring authors Sharee Miller (Coily and Cute) and Anastasia Higginbotham, Trail Blazers Camps and others to be announced. Begun in 2011 and entirely run by volunteers, including local high school students and college students from Medgar Evers College and LIU Brooklyn, this annual gathering celebrates Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy and fosters literacy and awareness of the Civil Rights Movement and social justice issues among youth and their families in the Prospect Lefferts Gardens section of Flatbush.  This year's event features presentations by author/illustrator Sharee Miller, reading from her books Princess Hair and Don’t Touch My Hair, and author/activist Anastasia Higginbotham, reading from her book Not My Idea: A Book about Whiteness. The day also includes arts and crafts, interactive performances by local musicians, a complimentary lunch, and a short film screening and discussion. All performances and activities are free and open to the public. Doors open at 10:45am.
