Martin Luther King Day Civil Disobedience Walk

January 16 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

12-2 PM
Meet in the Visitor Center Gallery at Walden Pond, 915 Walden St., Concord
In honor of MLK Day, join Concord historian Richard Smith and Robbins House Programming Director Nikki Turpin for a conversation about Thoreau’s legacy of civil disobedience. Thoreau’s arrest for non-payment of taxes as a protest against slavery laid ground for his essay Civil Disobedience, which Martin Luther King Jr., Mohandas Gandhi, and other activists read and cited in support of their activism. For ages 13+ years.
