DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING WEEKEND

January 18 - 20
Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site

Join Eastern State Penitentiary as we commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his 1963 "Letter from Birmingham Jail.” Engage in special readings from the landmark text and respond to its relevance today. All special activities are free and open to the public. Daytime tours of Eastern State are available for standard admission prices.

Professional actors, youth, and community leaders read excerpts from Dr. King’s letter three times a day on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday at 11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., and 3:30 p.m. After each reading, visitors are invited to respond to the letter’s relevance today during an informal discussion moderated by a civil rights scholar. 

In addition, on Monday, January 20 only, join us for family activities (10 am - 4 pm) with the African American Museum in Philadelphia and Art Sanctuary, musical performances (1 pm and 3 pm) by Justin Griggs, and community electronics recycling (10 am - 2 pm) with PAR-Recycle Works.
