The Clinton Center took Head of the Class Bash to Pine Bluff to support B.R.A.V.E.’s Project Fresh Start event with backpacks and school supplies for students. The Clinton Center also brought dental and health screenings, as well as healthy cooking demonstrations.
Join us at the Clinton Center for Letters from Anne and Martin, a performance that combines the iconic voices of Anne Frank and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Developed from excerpts from The Diary of Anne Frank and Dr. King’s “Letter from a Birmingham Jail,” this program evokes the important messages from these legendary figures as they write of their hopes and plans for a peaceful and unified world. Following the presentation, staff of the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect will facilitate a discussion.
The Clinton Center’s outdoor installation, The Anne Frank Tree, provides a unique opportunity for students of all ages to learn more about the ongoing struggle for social justice and human rights. On January 31, 2018, on the Jewish holiday Tu BiShvat, which means “New Year for Trees,” Holocaust survivor Mrs. Irene Butter will lead two educational programs. Butter was born in Berlin and grew up as a Jewish child in Nazi-occupied Europe. A survivor of two concentration camps, she came to the United States in 1945. Since the late 1980s, she has been teaching students about the Holocaust and the lessons she learned during those traumatic years. She continues to travel the country and speak about the Holocaust and her upcoming memoir, Seize the Sky, which will further detail her journey.
