Chippie's 13 Days of Halloween
BCM's Virtual "Creepy Countdown" for Kids
Are your kids counting the days until Halloween? Here's a way you can count with them - and have spooky fun each day.
Chippie, Behringer-Crawford Museum's chipper chipmunk mascot, is hosting 13 days of free Halloween activities as part of his continuing Chippie's Sensational Science Lab series. Each day at 1 p.m. from Sunday, October 18 through Halloween, there will be a short video on BCM's YouTube channel and Facebook page with a Halloween-themed craft, activity or science experiment for preschool-aged kids.
Six@Six: The Grimké Sisters: Abolitionists to Suffragists
The only southern white women to ever become leading abolitionists, Sarah and Angelina Grimké worked tirelessly to expose the prejudices of American society in the 19th century. The Grimké sisters left comfortable lives as part of the Planter elite in the American South, they converted to Quakerism and dedicated their lives to reform. Their compelling story offers revisions to both the history of women's suffrage and abolition. This lecture will focus on the Grimké sisters' lives, their advocacy, and situate their compelling story within the broader American historical context.
