MLK Family Day at the Bruce

Commemorate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day at the Bruce Museum in Greenwich on Monday, January 20, 10 am to 4 pm by creating artwork inspired by Dr. King’s values of compassion, love, courage, and forgiveness.

At 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. in the Bantle Lecture gallery,  Karima A. Robinson, PhD, will perform “A So-Long Journey: The Early Years of Phillis Wheatley.” Wheatley was the first published African American woman poet and a leading figure in the early Abolitionist movement.

The Museum’s MLK Family Day will also include a donation drive in partnership with Filling in the Blanks, which provides weekend meals to children in need. Items requested for children ages pre-school through high school: New hats, gloves, socks, and backpacks. For directions and more information, visit or call 203-869-0376. Free admission to the Museum on MLK Family Day, no pre-registration required.
