Children in grades K - 8 of all backgrounds are invited to participate in this year's Living History Museum! The Living History Museum is dedicated to demonstrating the impact African Americans had on the lives of all Americans of all ages and backgrounds. The Palos Verdes Library District presents the museum in partnership with the Palos Verdes Chapter of The Links, Inc., The Black Heritage Association, the Rolling Hills/Palos Verdes Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and Jack and Jill of America.
At the museum, participants will portray an African American hero who inspires them and who helped make the country or the world a better places for everyone. As a participant, you will be a living exhibit at the museum and portray a hero you admire and identify with. You'll imagine what it was like to be your hero and tell people in the character of your hero. You will also create a presentation board to show more details about the life, accomplishments and impact of your hero and you can wear a costume and bring props, if you like!
The Living History Museum will take place Saturday, Feb 27. Participants will portray their hero at one of two sessions: 12:30 - 1:30 or 3:00- 4:00. Each session will be followed by a small award ceremony with refreshments.
