With three distinct programs to celebrate the 2021 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and with an abundance of health and safety precautions, the McLean Community Center (MCC) has developed original, interactive, virtual programs. The MCC programs include a Book Discussion about the iconic Marian Anderson, a Podcast Review of “Seeing White” and a totally new Community Story Sharing project.
According to the McLean Connection, “Regarding the new “Our Beloved Community: Uniting Through Stories,” Danielle Van Hook, Director, Youth Programs, indicated that the McLean community with its “generations of knowledge and wisdom are invited to share their personal stories—they can be historically significant or a family story that the storyteller loves to share. Storytellers will be matched with Story Adapters, whose job will be to interpret the stories into art forms; the possibilities are unlimited.”
As per McLean Connection, “The three virtual programs compose the 2021 McLean Community Center wide-ranging, weeks-long celebration of Dr. King’s dreams and works. The staff of The Alden Theatre, a division of the McLean Community Center, produced and is overseeing the compelling social justice and community building events.”
