The Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit has dedicated itself to exploring and celebrating the cultural legacy of African Americans for more than a half century. The museum has been the host to dozens of permanent and visiting exhibitions, more than 300 annual public events and programs, and education and research opportunities for adults, children, and visiting scholars. The Wright works to inspire visitors toward greater understanding, acceptance, and unity by reflecting on the achievements and tragedies of African American history. More than half a million people visit The Wright annually to engage with its collection. On Jan. 18, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, The Wright will host a virtual event, “The Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.” that features presentations by prominent civil rights activists, youth from Teen Hype and Detroit’s Police Athletic League, and a gospel performance by Ebenezer Missionary Church in honor of King.
