Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (MLK) Exhibit Center

Most people know about Dr. King’s 1963 March on Washington and his tragic 1968 assassination on April 4th in Memphis. However, his legacy includes the 1966 Chicago Freedom Campaign when  the King family took up residence for six months in a rundown apartment building at 1550 S. Hamlin Ave where the newly developed LCDC Legacy Apartments are now located.


The MLK Exhibit Center aims to commemorate Dr. Kings fight against housing inequality and redlining. “The MLK”  is one of the prominent cultural spaces in the North Lawndale community. Tour opportunities, private rentals, and exhibit programming are currently available at the exhibit.
