Martin Luther King, Jr.’s youthful experiences with segregation impelled him as an adult to march, write, and speak out so that laws in the United States would one day protect all people. Join professional storyteller, Linda Gorham, as she introduces us to Martin, a young boy growing up in the South, who would one day become the most visible spokesperson and activist of the Civil Rights Movement.  In the spirit of giving and peace, please bring canned goods or supplies to the opening and/or closing events to benefit Bags of Hope, Morningstar Mission of Joliet and St. John Food Pantry.
