On the national holiday Monday, January 15, the National Civil Rights Museum will remember the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., one of the most prolific humanitarians and leaders of the American Civil Rights Movement.  The focus of the celebration is community service and social justice in honor of Dr. King's impact on the global society. Activities include daylong performances, youth-centered "edutainment," a health pavilion and the National Civil Rights Museum experience. In the spirit of service, the Museum will hold its annual drives for Mid-South Food Bank and Lifeblood, and serve as a center for community resources and engagement.
