Ms. Linda Wynn, assistant director at the Tennessee Historical Commission, and a prominent scholar on Civil Rights history, will present the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The talk coincides with the 50th Anniversary of Dr. King’s assassination on April 4, 1968, at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis. The presentation will reflect on Dr. King’s accomplishments and the impact he has made on society.
The State Museum’s Lunch & Learn series is just what it says — a chance for participants to eat lunch while learning something about Tennessee history at the same time. Each presentation will begin at 12:15 p.m. and will last about 30 minutes. All of the programs are FREE to the public and will take place on Level B of the State Museum in front of the stage. For those unable to attend the Lunch and Learn, the event will be Livestreamed on the Tennessee State Museum’s Facebook Page.
