Chicago Children’s Museum plans King Day play

CHICAGO – The Chicago Children’s Museum plans to present a play about racism and segregation to mark the Martin Luther King Day holiday on Monday.

The play – “What Does It Mean, Dr. King?” – is designed to take the audience back to the 1960s civil rights movement through theater and song.

Museum officials say the annual play is meant to engage visitors of all ages in a dialogue on racism and segregation. At the end of the play, guests are encouraged to write a letter to Dr. King about their feelings on what he experienced and what they learned. Parents and guardians are urged to attend along with children.

The play is scheduled for four performances Monday. The play is free with general admission to the museum, but space is limited.
