Families flooded the Bruce Museum on Monday to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day. 

"We are doing a show called "Freedom Songs". It is a traveling history through black music and history," said Bright Star Touring Theater member Guillermo Jemmott. 

There was singing, dancing, and lots of learning. 

"It teaches the kinds how MLK Jr. fought for equality for black Americans to be seen as equals in this country," said performer Edmarie Montes. 

The performers said that it was extra special to do this show on this holiday. 

"It's an honor to be doing it on MLK Day. To do a  show like this that explores the history of black music and its impact on our culture is very great. It's an honor," said Jemmott.
