The National Public Housing Museum and Elmhurst Art Museum invite you to dedicate an hour on Martin Luther King Day, to hear about the “radical King.” Learn from enthralling activists and scholars, who share their stories and work that remind and challenge us to grapple with the lessons of MLK and beyond, including Nate Marshall, Beverly Guy-Sheftall, Rev. Dr. Marshall Elijah Hatch Sr., Bernardine Dohrn, and Mary Lou Finley. The program also includes a special sneak peek of two riveting new exhibits about the Chicago Freedom Movement with John McKinnon and Lisa Yun Lee.
