On Monday, many of us will have the day off of work to celebrate a man who truly changed our nation. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. helped lead the charge in garnering equality for different races. If you have the day off, try to actually do something that honors King, whether it be volunteering your time to help others, or educating your children on the topic.

This year, the Baltimore-based Sankofa Dance Theater will be heading to the Carroll Arts Center to perform on Jan. 20. The performance will feature African dance routines and drum ensembles. The show will be at 2 p.m. and is free and open to the public.

For those looking to have a more hands on approach, the dance theater will be holding a West African Dance class at 11 a.m. Monday. The class is open to all ages and costs $10 to participate. If you are looking for a way to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and teach your children about different cultures in a fun and exciting way, this seems like the perfect option.
