SSHMP is honored to be featured in the Opening Ceremony for Hyde Park Art Center‘s MLK Celebration Day. We’ll be showing selected clips about the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr as seen through South Side home movies, featuring the 1963 NAACP March where Myrlie Evers accepted the Springarn medal posthumously for her husband Medgar Evers, images from the West Side riots after the assassination, a trip to Memphis to see the Lorraine Hotel and Dr. King’s gravesite, and footage of Resurrection City, DC in 1968. Films are from the Lynette Frazier and Jean Patton Collections.

MLK Celebration Day continues from 11am-5pm with movie screenings, art making, spoken word, performance and curator tours. Visit the HPAC event sitefor details.
