MINE EYES HAVE SEEN


The exhibition presently being featured in the D.R.E.A.M. Gallery of the National Park Service Visitor Center is "MINE EYES HAVE SEEN". This exhibition features photographs that capture the struggle of the twentieth century Civil Rights Movement and the delivery of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.‟s historic "I Have a Dream" speech. Bob Adelman used his love of photography to record this historic moment through the lens of his camera to present the Civil Rights Movement as a human rights story. This exhibit includes photographs, a replica of the Lincoln Memorial, and the reflecting pool.

Did You Know?

Birth Home Block

The King Center owns the Birth Home and the National Park Service maintains it. The King Family moved out of the Birth Home in 1941 and the house was then converted into a two-family dwelling. The Rev. A.D. Williams King, Dr. King's brother, lived on the second floor in the 1950's and early 1960's.
