Workshops/One Day Experiences

National Underground Railroad Freedom Center
Holocaust & Humanity Center
Saturday, October 12, 2019; 8:00 am-7:00 pm
$20 adult / $10 child suggested contribution (scholarships available).
Travel by bus to Cincinnati with fellow Good Samaritans for a day of learning and conversations at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center – a museum of conscience, an education center, a convener of dialogue, and a bea­con of light for inclusive freedom around the globe. Their physical location in downtown Cincinnati is just a few steps from the banks of the Ohio River, the great natural barrier that separated the slave states of the South from the free states of the North. Afterwards, we’ll travel to the Holocaust & Humanity Center, which exists to ensure the lessons of the Holocaust inspire action today. HHC educates about the Holocaust, remembers its victims and acts on its lessons. Families with kids both welcomed and encouraged.

Good Sam’s Kids Visit The Indiana Repertory Theatre to see
The Watsons Go To Birmingham
February 2020 (Date & Time TBD)
$10 adult/$5 child suggested contribution (scholarships available)
Young Good Samaritans and their families will meet the Watsons of Flint, Michigan: Momma, Dad, little sister Joetta, big brother Byron, and ten-year-old Kenny. When Byron can’t stay out of trouble, the whole family piles into their “Brown Bomber” and drives south to visit Grandma Sands for the summer. But along the way, they’ll experience a pivotal moment in the Civil Rights Movement. In December 2019, copies of the book will be distributed to all Good Sam’s families with school-aged children so that families can read the book at home before attending the play.
