2ND & 3RD GRADE TO YOUNG AUDITORIUM

Wednesday, February 4, 2015 - Van Buren 2nd & 3rd grade students will be attending the "I have a Dream" performance at the Young Auditorium. 

Young Auditorium has this to say about the program: This compelling dramatization of the life and times of one of the most influential and charismatic leaders of the “American Century” and the Civil Rights movement will inspire your students as they experience this great leader’s struggle and his dream of lifting “our nation from the quicksand of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood.” Martin Luther King, Jr. lived from 1929 - 1968, a time of tremendous racial injustice and - thanks in large part to him - change.
