We are thrilled to introduce new audiences to Dr. King’s life story and engage with our creative community.” She emphasizes that this age-appropriate play allows children to perceive Dr. King’s journey through a child’s eyes, enabling them to incorporate his teachings into their lives. The overarching message is that everyone, regardless of age, can contribute to making the world a better place.
