Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.
A Fort Lauderdale exhibit focusing on photography from the civil rights-era is being extended to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act.
Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday is January 20. It is a day set aside specifically to remember the civil rights leader. We focus on how the African-American community and the Jewish community have often stood arm and arm in the struggle for equal rights.
February is Black History Month. We speak to the Executive Director of the Black Archives, and a Miami-Dade College profeessor who met Dr. King when she was a child growing up in Georgia.
