3.1.18: Recipe for Success: A book cart, tap dancing, hundreds of students, and the Lundy Law Foundation

Thanks to the Lundy Law Foundation, we are able to bring the 2018 year of Courageous Choices: Finding Your Creative Voice at NMAJH to hundreds of students, right in line with the Foundations’ mission of your education.

 
Courageous Choices is a signature Museum initiative that brings history to life for students (ages 10 and up). The students analyze and interpret documents, events, and participate in an interactive Museum Tour that helps give them an understanding of historical figures who exemplify American values and freedom.

 
The cornerstone of the program is a theatrical performance of 1 Pound, 4 Ounces, created and performed by Khalil Munir. The one-man show tells a story – his story -- of overcoming adversities and hurdles in life.  Plus, he tap dances.  It’s amazing.  The students are captivated every time.

 
Thanks to the Lundy Law Foundation, at the end of their school visit, students are now able to take home books donated by the Foundation to continue their educational journey.  And we have a cool new book cart – see the photo above!
