I just realized this morning that Tavis and Rickey have the same last name… wonder if they are related???
Historic Exhibit Will Premiere on Birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Serve as a Prelude to Inauguration Day. The National Constitution Center in Philadelphia will host the world debut of America I AM: The African American Imprint, a new exhibition celebrating nearly 500 years of African American contributions to our country. The touring exhibition will open at the Center on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birth date on January 15, 2009, and run through May 3, 2009, before continuing its 10-city, four-year tour.
Covering more than 13,000 square feet at the Center, the exhibition will present a historical continuum of pivotal moments in courage, conviction, and creativity that solidifies the undeniable imprint of African Americans across the nation and around the world. The more than 200 artifacts and information within the exhibition will provide context to how African Americans have contributed to and shaped American culture across four core areas: economic, socio-political, cultural, and spiritual, up to present-day events, including the inauguration of the first African American president.
