Martin Luther King Day at the Spellman

Monday, January 20, 2020

To celebrate the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the Spellman Museum has put together a special Black History Month exhibit featuring stamps about Dr. King and more. Various stamp activities for children include: making a US stamps collection from the Black Heritage US stamp series; a stamp scavenger hunts for prizes; stamp puzzles; searching in the Museum’s two-cent stamp boxes; design Dr. King stamps to display in the Museum’s main gallery; several arts and crafts activities with stamps; and have a photo made into a stamp and create envelopes to send letters to friends. The postage will be free. In addition, each family will receive a packet of stamps, a Dr. King US commemorative stamp, and a Black Heritage First Day Cover. A booklet about how to start a stamp collection will also be available. Kids can also become members of the Museum free for one year and get packets of stamps each month.
