Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Citizens Bank CEO Daniel Fitzpatrick said the bank’s charitable foundation is donating $25,000 to underwrite the museum’s costs on January 20th, to offer free admission and cultural activities to more than 3,000 expected visitors.
The tumultuous year of 1963 included the March on Washington, Dr. King’s historic speech, and the assassination of Pres. Kennedy.
The concert begins at 4pm on MLK Day at Martin Luther King High School, and the orchestra’s new music director, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, will be there.
The exhibit opened on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s actual birthday, January 15th, to honor his legacy.
April 4th, the anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther Kings’ assassination, doesn’t have to be a day of sad remembrance. Instead, organizers say it’s an opportunity to stand against violence and to further Dr. King’s legacy.
