About the Event

Each year, the Museum honors the legacy of civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., with messages of unity, justice, and peace. This year his message was especially important as communities rose together to speak against injustice.

Join us as we honor Dr. King's legacy and recognize this year's Caryakid Award winner, Rev. Dr. Marcus D. Cosby.
