Atlanta International Airport honors Dr. Martin Luther King,Jr. year-round

Yesterday was the official holiday in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

But you can learn more about the Nobel Peace Prize winner anytime you pass through Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport (ATL).

Since the mid-1980’s, the airport has had an exhibit titled Legacy of a Dream…Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The exhibit, on Concourse E, includes family photos, the permit from Dr. King’s March on Washington, the suit Dr. King wore to his meeting with President Lyndon B. Johnson,  Dr. King’s wristwatch and glasses, the transistor radio he took to marches and rallies to listen to news, and other items.

All of the artifacts and photographs were provided by the Martin Luther King Center.
