Celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
January 17th marks a day of celebration for the life and achievements of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
During his lifetime, he experienced racial discrimination that affected African Americans and other minorities alike in the United States. This eventually became the catalyst for King’s dedication in activism. It is through his highly regarded “non-violent” approach that he was able to spark change within the country and ensure the nation provides its citizens with civil rights. Dr. King’s influence is strongly felt within the nation and around the world today.
Join the Chicago History Museum on Monday, January 17th for its annual Family Event to celebrate Dr. King, which includes creative workshops, discussion panels, and a musical performance. The event is from 10:30am-3:30pm at the museum’s location on 1601 N. Clark Street.

“We must come to see that the end we seek is a society at peace with itself, a society that can live with its conscience.” -Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Montgomery, Alabama, March 25, 1965.
