The Beloved Community: MLK Jr. and Activism in Washington, DC (Smithsonian Anacostia Museum)

February 15, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Presentation and Discussion on MLK’s Activism in DC

About this Event

The nation’s capital has always been associated with civic activism, particularly during the tumultuous years of the civil rights movement. No single person stood out as much as a beacon of civil engagement and activism during that time than Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. King’s concept of the “beloved community” would be a principle for all people to follow who were concerned about making positive changes regarding injustice, economic and social inequality. Ultimately this shift in attitude would be reflected in increased economic and social prosperity for all families and all communities.

Derek Gray, Archivist, DC Public Library will give a presentation on King’s activism in Washington, DC including his social organizing efforts and speeches. This program is being presented in conjunction with the museum’s exhibition, A Right To The City, and in partnership with D.C. Public Library.
