Second Saturday Story Time
The Shasta Historical Society hosts a history themed story time on Facebook the second Saturday of each month. About 1/2 hour in length, it is appropriate for children ten and under. Older children are of course welcome, too! This month’s selection: I Have A Dream by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., read by Kelsey Farquhar.
On August 28, 1963, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial during the March on Washington, Martin Luther King gave one of the most powerful and memorable speeches in our nation’s history. The themes of equality and freedom for all are not only relevant today, 50 years later, but also provide young readers with an important introduction to our nation’s past.
The reading will be taped and available for later viewing on the Shasta Historical Society’s YouTube Channel.
