MLK50 Commemoration

Reflecting & Honoring

In April of 2018, all eyes turned to Memphis, Tennessee as the National Civil Rights Museum honored the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s tragic death through a three-day grand commemoration. The MLK50 Commemoration events created an opportunity for groups from all over to come together and reflect on the state of racial unity and peace in today’s culture. A two-day symposium convening scholars, historians, and thoughts leaders from across the country kicked off the events, followed by a day-long observance and tribute to Dr. King. The Day of Remembrance culminated with an Evening of Storytelling – a signature event to conclude the MLK50 Commemoration. The National Civil Rights Museum partnered with LEO Events to ensure an impactful, memorable event. The MLK50 events received immense media coverage with local, national, and international outlets including The New York Times and U.S. News & World Report, as well as a global media reach of over 5 billion.
