Motherhood Monday: Remembering Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. / by Donna Olivia Owusu-Ansah

I’m too tired to write much. Three day weekends with the girls wear me out. And as much as I am worn out, I am also full. I had the good pleasure of spending the morning with my girls, and other justice minded people, at the Paul Robeson Center for the Arts in Princeton, NJ for their annual event celebrating the life and legacy of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King. It was a beautiful gathering that began with breakfast and a talk from Rev. Lukata Mjumbe, Pastor of the Witherspoon Street Presbyterian Church in Princeton. Rev. Mjumbe was followed by Tracy K. Smith, National Poet Laureate. The larger group was dismissed for crafts for children of all ages. The girls had a blast making buttons, painting peace rocks, contributing to a mural, and making monoprints of Rosa Parks. The morning ended with a soul stirring performance from the Unity Choir from the First Baptist Church of Princeton.  

Here are some pictures from the morning, including our girls lunch and discussion about the event and Dr. King at Panera. It’s a wonder we made it. Baby Girl was convinced we were going to be blowed away by the frigid wind.
