Black History Mobile Museum to Feature New MLK Exhibit

Next week on January 16, students are encouraged to visit the new Black History 101 Mobile Museum Exhibit: ’68. The exhibit will include more than 150 original artifacts focusing on the major events and players surrounding the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. in 1968. The exhibit is in honor of the anniversary year of this world-shattering and monumental event.
