Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History

AARP Michigan and the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History will celebrate the special relationship between grandparents and grandchildren at a Grandparents Day event, on Sunday, Sept. 9 in Detroit. The event will take place from 1-5 p.m. at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, 315 E. Warren Avenue in Detroit.

This free, fun-filled afternoon will include activities for all ages, including:

  • Storytelling;
  • Musical performances;

  • A resource fair and more.

AARP Michigan and the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History recognize the important and unique role grandparents have played in families.
