Fourth Annual MLK Day Event

The fourth annual MLK Day event at Northgate Mall Monday will be held Jan. 20 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., celebrating Dr. King’s life and legacy in a way children can understand. The free party will take place at Northgate Mall’s Center Court located at 1058 West Club Boulevard in Durham and will feature Dr. Charmaine McKissick-Melton who, along with her sisters and brother, was one of the first black children to desegregate Durham Public Schools. In a story time geared for preschool to middle school students, she will share her experiences integrating Durham’s elementary schools as a young child and growing up in a family at the heart of the civil rights struggle. Children of all ages will enjoy the story time, freedom songs, and birthday cake, and participate in crafts and on-site service projects. Activities are designed for preschool, elementary school, and middle-school aged children. Find out more in the attached flier.
