Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Come enjoy this special community day, which features inspiring performances, programs, and historical simulations that highlight contributions and stories of African Americans in Atlanta. Explore and be a part of the conversation.

Among this year’s highlights is a performance of Walking Through the Valley written by Addae Moon, Atlanta History Center’s Director of Museum Theatre. Set in 1963, a young activist is asked by the "powers that be” to alter the language in a speech he’s written for what will become an historic event. He envisions a conversation with four iconic freedom fighters in an effort to decide whether a compromise will best serve the greater good.

This is a free admission day. Guests are invited to enjoy the program as well as Atlanta History Center’s historic houses, gardens, and exhibitions.
