The MLK Streets Project


View The MLK Streets Project, a revealing documentary that follows a group of teenagers as they explore the conditions of streets named after Dr. King across America. Follow 13 high-school students from 5 Washington, DC high schools as they travel cross-country to observe and record, first-hand, the condition of America's MLK streets.

In his life, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was known for serving "the least of these", and rightfully so. In his "afterlife", streets, avenues and boulevards brandishing his name often serve as the addresses (or at least hangouts) of the new millennium edition of "the least of these". Narrated by Rain Pryor, the film looks critically at the street-naming phenomenon, King's legacy, and the effects of gentrification on the streets he once marched through. Special Museum Admission: $5
