King and the Library: A Vision Session

Thursday, Feb. 28, 2019, 6 p.m.

When the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library reopens in 2020, it will be a space for everyone.
 
Dr. King advocated for “beloved community” and urged Washingtonians to “prepare to participate” when he spoke at Cardozo High School in 1967. 
 
Join us for an evening of lightning talks, performances and readings by curators, historians, artists, authors, and community members inspired by King’s vision for a just society. Presenters will explore the meaning of King’s legacy in Washington, D.C. today and the public library as a space for justice and equality.
 
This event will be interactive, with opportunities for response and dialogue.

Presented as part of DC Public Library and DC Public Schools Black History Month programs in conjunction with the People's University program series.

Thursday, Feb. 28, 6 - 8 p.m.
