National Portrait Gallery Honors King

July 5, 2013

August 28 marks the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech. At the National Portrait Gallery, the museum is recognizing the event with a new exhibit that honors the man and the work he did. There’s enough in the exhibit to keep casual history fans engaged, but curators hope that visitors will come away with a fuller understanding of King’s life, as a minister, an orator, and as a family man. The exhibit is on view daily from 11:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. to June 1 2014 at the National Portrait Gallery, 8th and F streets NW. Free.
