Events marking the birthday of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. continue throughout Northeast Ohio today. Many Cleveland-area museums – including the Cleveland Museum of Art, Western Reserve Historical Society, MOCA Cleveland and the Cleveland Museum of Natural History -- are offering free admission today and have special programs.


At the Maltz Museum, a program with Ohio’s first black congressman, Louis Stokes, begins at 11:30. The  Cleveland Botanical Garden has a special program at 1 p.m. for children to  learn about plants important to African American culture. And the Cleveland Orchestra is offering dance and other performances during its free open house.
