Local events planned to recognize MLK Day
January 18, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
On Monday (Jan. 18) at 10 a.m. the Hopkinton Youth Commission will host an online story time and craft for kids. There will be a live reading of “Magic Trash: A Story of Tyree Guyton and His Art” by resident Erin Graziano, who then will lead children ages 5-12 in an art project. Registration is required and can be done here.
The Hopkinton Freedom Team, in partnership with Hopkinton Youth & Family Services, will host a talk on unity by Hyppolite Ntigurirwa, an international peace activist and child survivor of the 1994 Rwanda genocide. This talk will be available for viewing anytime and also will be featured in the Hopkinton-based Islamic Masumeen Center of New England program this Sunday (Jan. 17) from noon-1 p.m. This talk contains some sensitive content related to a 7-year-old’s experience with the Rwandan genocide. Viewing is that of personal discretion.
For more information on the talk, visit the Freedom Team website (hopkintonfreedomteam.org), where details also are available on the Islamic Masumeen Center MLK Day event.
