ADMISSION: Free with Museum admission; youth 18 and under always free
In celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. and his dreams for a better world, join us for a family time that rejoices in stories and songs from a myriad of cultures. Storyteller Muriel Johnson will take you on an amazing journey into other places and possibilities, while you gather within the exhibition Jewish Folktales Retold: Artist as Maggid.
Muriel Johnson grew up in an environment where language was celebrated. As a child Muriel would sit in awe as her mother would read, tell stories, sing songs and recite nursery rhymes. By the age of five she had acquired an extraordinary vocabulary, soaring imagination and gift of expression. It was only natural that when Muriel became a mother and later a teacher that she was compelled to share the same way her mother had shared with her. She has performed at pre-K and elementary schools, churches, museums, colleges, festivals and countless other venues from rural communities on the Eastern Shores of Maryland to the townships of Cape Town, South Africa.
