January 3, 2024

In honor of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s service to communities, the Indiana Historical Society (IHS) is celebrating community and Dr. King’s birthday through music and story as part of a daylong celebration on Monday, January 15.

On January 15, spend the day at IHS and be inspired to be your best self by focusing on service to one another and our communities. Be uplifted and encouraged by storytelling and music, add your own commitment to “Be the Change” to a growing mural, and reflect on all the big and little things you can do to improve the world around you.

The schedule for the day is as follows:
