Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
Online experience
January 18, 2021

Western Reserve Historical Society

Every year, Western Reserve Historical Society commemorates the history, spirit, and life of one of America’s greatest heroes of social justice and equality – Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This year, WRHS continues this tradition by creating a unique online Martin Luther King, Jr. Day experience, made up of free digital programs, activities, and content.

Resources include access to Celebrate Those Who Give Black (https://www.wrhs.org/celebrate-those-who-give-black/), an online experience that tells the story of Black philanthropy in Cleveland by honoring the past, celebrating the present and inspiring the future. Additional content such as historical photographs (https://tinyurl.com/y2ybs7zy), downloadable activity sheets (https://www.wrhs.org/explore/digital-learning-resources/), community profiles, and informative blog articles (https://www.wrhs.org/…/african-american-archives…/) will help individuals of all ages gain a unique perspective on what it means to give back and be a hero to their community.
