National Civil Rights Museum To Honor MLK For 50th Anniversary Of His Assassination

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) - The 50th anniversary of the death of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is next year. In April 2018, visitors from all over the world will head to the National Civil Rights Museum for the special event.

The museum is presenting MLK 50; a look at what was going on 50 years ago, and what is happening 50 years later.

They'll do this with a number of events.

“To learn about the history, learn about where we are today, and where we need to go. Because that really is our intent,” says NCRM President Terri Freeman.

Freeman says events from this April through the next will include youth-based activities and grassroots efforts to improve the community.

You can also expect a major symposium and an evening of storytelling.
