Kids have peace march, music and “I Have a Dream” rendition

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. dreamed for us to live in a world where we would “not be judged by the color of [our] skin, but by the content of [our] character.” In honor of that dream, the Children’s Museum of Houston celebrated the legacy of Dr. King for the 20th annual celebration, kicking off with a peace march at noon.
