Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Honoring the life and legacy of Atlanta’s most well-known civil rights leader.

Public Programs

Monday, Jan 18 (all day)

  • Virtual Event

On the third Monday in January, people across the nation come together in the spirit of civic responsibility and volunteerism to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Atlanta History Center traditionally commemorates his life by offering free admission to the public and serving up a variety of educational programs that celebrate his legacy. This year, being a responsible citizen means celebrating virtually.

In 2021, we invite you to explore the ways through which our youngest citizens blaze brave new trails towards equality. For more than a century, some of the most meaningful change our country has seen has been led by young people; and Atlanta is at the heart of that movement.

Virtual Author Talk

Join us on January 18, 2021, for a virtual panel discussion with authors Stephen Kendrick and Paul Kendrick and leaders of the Atlanta Student Movement Charles Black and Rev. Dr. Otis T. Moss, Jr.
