Event Details

Join us and our friends at Creative Action as we stand up for a noble cause and write a song to make our community more inclusive and caring. Listen to protest songs from the Reconstruction era to the Civil Rights movement and discover Texas's role in the fight for racial equality. From singing, beatboxing, guided movement exercises, and a dance party for the whole family, we encourage all ages to join in the fun.

This active program is designed to inspire creativity, encourage physical and social/emotional development, and support bonding and connection between caregivers and their children. Inspiration for this program comes from the Bullock Museum's exhibition, Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow, and the Museum's Texas History Galleries.

Program is FREE to the public.

About Family Programs

Family programs provide educational and engaging activities for young Texans and their caregivers. Events are designed to bring families together, spark conversations and provide opportunities for growth and development.

At the Bullock Museum, programs have been a place for the community to gather and celebrate culture, explore new ideas, and share experiences together. During the COVID-19 pandemic, programs still provide an opportunity to bring the community together, even if we are apart. Please join us through virtual programs and enjoy lessons, discussions and activities with your family, friends and neighbors who are also participating from home.
