THE MAN. THE MOVEMENT. THE MOMENT.
APRIL 4, 2023 • 4:30 PM CENTRAL
MUSEUM COURTYARD • 4:00 PM MUSICAL PRELUDE
The National Civil Rights Museum presents a hybrid commemoration in honor of Dr. King’s life and legacy on the 55th anniversary of his death. Guests are welcome to join us in paying tribute to Dr. King in the museum courtyard or via live stream.
Each year, the Museum remembers the tragic event that occurred on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel in 1968 as we ask the perpetual question, “Where do we go from here?” This year’s event features a keynote speaker, special performances, fraternal tributes, and the changing of the balcony wreath with a moment of silence at 6:01 pm Central when Dr. King was slain. A musical prelude begins at 4:00 pm Central.
