LOUISVILLE, KY (January 9, 2024) — The Muhammad Ali Center is proud to announce a full slate of programming in celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Admission to the Center will be free for everyone on Monday, January 15 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and includes access to all exhibits.
Starting at 10 a.m., there will be a screening of Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech at the top of each hour. The 12 p.m. screening will be followed by a Muhammad Ali Center Council of Students panel “Continuing the Dream, Continuing the Legacy.” The panel is designed to encourage discussion on Dr. King’s message of equality, justice and peace, as well as realizing his dream in today’s culture.
The Muhammad Ali Center offers free admission to all as part of our Community Free Day series, sponsored by Passport by Molina Healthcare. The Center strives to decrease barriers of access to local residents and expand knowledge of Muhammad Ali in hopes to forward his legacy for future generations.
In addition, the Center is collaborating with the Association for Teaching Black History in Kentucky to offer a free professional development for teachers on Monday, January 15. This free, full-day workshop features informative breakout sessions to help empower educators in bringing Black history into their classrooms.
The workshop features a keynote address by Karyn Parsons; actor (best known for her work on the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air), author, and founder of the Sweet Blackberry production company.
