MLK, Jr. Day: Give Us the Ballot

January 17 2022 | 10:00am to 2:00pm

Celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. with our annual “MLK, Jr. Day: Give Us the Ballot” event on Monday, January 17 at the Detroit Historical Museum.

Visitors can participate in a voter registration project for kids as well as listen to an expert on the importance of registering to vote. Kids will make their own ‘mock’ voter registration cards and receive MLK worksheets and coloring pages.

The inspiring day will also include drop-in guided tours of Detroit 67: Perspectives and performances by Aleca Gleser and 3D Dance Troupe. The event will conclude with cupcakes and a sing-along to Stevie Wonder's "Happy Birthday."

Pre-registration is sold out! Walk-in admission will be available at the door, if capacity allows.
