The story of Martin Luther King Jr. comes alive in the U-M Detroit Center exhibit “Living the Legacy in the D: A Tribute to the Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial.” It is presented from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Saturday through July 20.
It is curated by graduate student Jina B. Kim, an intern of the Arts of Citizenship program. Kim drew inspiration from King’s historical connections to Detroit and the national memorial built in his honor. Through displays, scale models and inspirational photographs, the exhibit transports the sights and sounds of the MLK exhibit on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., to Detroit. It also highlights King’s presence in local history.
The exhibition opened one day before the 49th anniversary of King’s June 23, 1963, Great March on Detroit.
The exhibit is presented by the Detroit Center in partnership with the Martin Luther King Jr. National Memorial Foundation. For more information, go to www.DetroitCenter.umich.edu, email email@example.com or call 313-593-3584.
