This exhibition is a celebration of the birth and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. King has been an inspiration to many by his life's example and efforts towards equality, justice, and hope, to name a few. We, the artists, while diverse in backgrounds, ethnicity's, and approaches, hope to have captured the many tenets of his life's work through artistic expression, fostering a spirit of service, love for our community, and overall care for mankind.  The work isn’t finished.  We have to continue this work together for humanity’s sake. We have to Endear the Dream.
 

The exhibit will be at the LPL until February 29th

This exhibit is brought to you by the Community Arts Research Initiative


Join us in reading & the discussion
of this fascinating true story.

'I come from a country that was created at midnight. When I almost died it was just after midday.' - Malala.  
This book and documentary film looks at the events leading up to the Taliban's attack on Pakistani schoolgirl, Malala Yousafzai, for speaking out on girls' education, followed by the aftermath, including her speech to the United Nations.   

In 2014, Malala Yousafzai was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

              People of the Dawn:
Ways of the Abenaki Indians

     This workshop creates a picture of Abenaki Indian culture, past and present, using stories; artifacts; an imaginary visit to an Abenaki village; discussion of Abenaki culture, beliefs, and seasonal life cycle; and a review of available teaching resources.
     The practical and common questions about Abenaki culture are emphasized: How and where did they live? What did they eat? What was it like growing up as an Abenaki Indian one thousand years ago? What did they believe in? Where do the Abenaki live now? What is the present state of Abenaki culture in this region?
     Participants share in the imaginative process of storytelling and are introduced to how stories, songs, chants and dances can be used to explore other cultures. No registration required.

  Based in part on the book by Michael J. Caduto, A Time Before New Hampshire:
The Story of a Land and Native Peoples, 
published by the University Press of New England & University of New Hampshire.

This Program is part of the Friends of the LPL Cultural Horizons Series
