“MLK Day Celebrations at Museum of the African Diaspora Jan. 20

Free Admission for All to Day of Art, Exhibits, Performances & Programs

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Celebrate the dream that unites us as one at San Francisco’s Museum of the African Diaspora (www.moadsf.org) on Monday, January 20. This is the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and a national day of observance. To honor the Nobel Peace Prize winner’s life and bring people together, MoAD is offering free admission to the museum and all of its exhibits, performances and programs for the entire day.

“This year, I am remembering the struggle to make Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday a federal day of remembrance. I especially remember signing the mighty petition for Congress to pass the law,” said Linda Harrison, Executive Director of MoAD. MLK Day was first observed in 1986.

Normally, MoAD is closed on Monday and Tuesday. But this special Monday, the museum has put together a program that includes film, photography, poetry and musical performances that celebrate the lasting greatness of King. His life and achievements will be honored through art projects and the collaborative efforts of the community. MoAD MLK Day activities will run from 11am to 5pm on January 20, thanks to a generous donation by Lennar Urban.

MLK Day celebrations start on the sidewalk with Jamie Treacy’s chalk art from 1-3pm. On the second floor is a film screening and discussion on Brooklyn’s Castle from 11:30am to 1:30pm. It then moves to spoken word and poetry performances from 2-3pm by Young, Gifted and Talented from Oakland. Freedom stories will be shared by the Bay Area Veterans of the Civil Rights Movement through poetry, photos and music from 3:30-4:30pm.

On the third floor, an art project will take place from 11am to 4pm with a scavenger hunt at 11am to 5pm. Films about King, his life, struggle and successes, will be shown in the Wells Fargo Heritage Center from 11am to 4pm.
