City to Host Martin Luther King Jr. Exhibit


The City of Gardner will host an educational exhibit to celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Jan. 18 and 21, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., in the City Hall Council Chambers. The exhibit will feature displays highlighting King’s life as it relates to the Civil Rights Movement, his distinct focus on service, and his death.

All members of the public are invited to walk through the exhibit to learn more about one of the most prominent leaders of the civil rights movement and the principles he dedicated his life for, such as social justice, community service, non-violence, diversity, hope and love.

The exhibit also includes a children’s workstation where young learners can read age-appropriate materials and complete worksheets to advance their knowledge about King and understand why he is commemorated each year. There is also an interactive quiz to test kids’ understanding about what they’ve learned.

Visitors will receive a Martin Luther King Jr. keepsake. Light refreshments will also be provided.
