Hands Up! Storytime, April 18, 2019

HandsUP Hands Up! for Storytime on Thursday, April 18 at 11:00 a.m at Morven Museum, 55 Stockton Street, Princeton, NJ. $10 for two adults with up to 3 children; free with Morven’s Family Membership. Ages 3 to 6

Breanna J. McDaniel’s triumphant picture book Hands Up! recasts a charged phrase as part of a black girl’s everyday life–hands up for a hug, hands up in class, hands up for a high five–before culminating in a moment of resistance and strength at a protest march.  Join us in remembering the 56th anniversary of the week when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. wrote his letter from Birmingham Jail while incarcerated for protesting against segregation.  Children will create a multicolored paper handprint wreath to take home. Ticket price includes same-day museum admission.
