Martin Luther King Jr.
Exhibit Center

About MKL Exhibit Center
“The moral force of SCLC’s Southern Christian Leadership Conference’s nonviolent movement philosophy was needed to help eradicate a vicious system which seeks to further colonize thousands of Negroes within a slum environment” (Martin Luther King Jr, 18 March 1966). This driving force motivated MLK to spearhead the Chicago Freedom Campaign in 1966 and move his family into a deteriorating apartment building at 1550 S Hamilton Ave.

For six months, King and his supporters, engaged Black community members and organized housing campaigns to address the disparate housing conditions in North Chicago. LCDC is proud to advance King’s mission by turning the apartment building on S Hamilton Ave into the newly developed Legacy Apartments.

The MLK Exhibit Center, also located on S Hamilton, honors Dr. King’s legacy of fighting redlining and housing inequality. It is currently available for tour opportunities, private rentals and exhibits, and educational programming.

Email us at Ayoung@lcdc.net for private rental inquiries and more information.
