Jr. National Historic Site
In association with the national holiday celebration honoring civil rights martyr Martin Luther King, Jr., several commemorative events will be held at the national park in Atlanta that bears his name.
The establishment of Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site on October 10, 1980, did more than just preserve the martyred civil rights leader’s birth home and church. It provided further impetus for the preservation of historic Sweet Auburn, one of the most important black neighborhoods in America.
