In observance of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday, Mayor Don Wesely and the Lincoln Commission on Human Rights will host a display of King memorabilia just outside the Mayor’s office on the second floor of the County-City Building, 555 South 10th Street. The public is invited to view the free display from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, January 10 through Friday, January 12.
The display is made up of items of historical significance which commemorate the life and work of Dr. King. It will include copies of Dr. King's speeches, photos, brochures and news articles. The display will also include a photographic exhibit called "People of Color in Early Nebraska," which will include photographs from the State Historical Society and from the collection of the McWilliams Family of Lincoln.
