From 1 to 1:30 p.m., Albert Gray Eagle, a noted American Indian flute artist and performer skilled in the craft of making traditional flutes, and Dwe Williams, who represents Ebony Voices, a storytelling unit of Rhythmically Speaking that incorporates music and womanly style in the telling of stories from the perspective of women, will perform at the gallery.

The Paramount OKC, a coffee bar/screening room at 701 W Sheridan Ave., will screen the film “A Call to Conscience” from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. With the film, Tavis Smiley takes a comprehensive look at King's fight to put an end to the Vietnam War and the impact his legacy continues to make among peace activists throughout the world

From 2:30 to 3 p.m., attendees and artists will be invited to design signs promoting peace and diversity to hold during the Martin Luther King Jr. Day Parade in downtown Oklahoma City.

In addition, eventgoers are invited to join the parade at Sheridan and Broadway from 3 to 5 p.m.

The event, including art materials, will be offered free of charge.
