#MoorToSeeInTally during #MLKweekend 2017#MoorToSeeInTally during #MLKweekend 2017

After you have experienced Keith Hamilton Cobb’s stunning American Moor production, stay throughout the #MLKweekend to attend the MLK Celebration of Life at Bethel AME Church on Sunday and then on Monday “…Be the Change…and Live the Dream!” at Tallahassee’s MLK Dare to Dream Festival at Cascades Park.

In honor of #MLKweekend, the Riley House Museum and the Meek-Eaton Black Archives have created an African-American Heritage Tour.  There are so many opportunities to explore Tallahassee by walking, riding, driving, or taking a segue on the #DiscoverTallahassee #HeritageTour.
