MLK Day ACPS Poster Exhibition Monday, Jan 19

MLK Day Poster Exhibition at City Hall in Alexandria, Virginia

I went over to take a look at these late last night as I will be out of town this weekend. Here are the details…

On Monday, January 19, 2015 from 1:00 -3:00 pm, the City of Alexandria honors the memory and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with its annual Poster Exhibition and Program. Posters will be on view from Alexandria City Public School students in the Vola Lawson Lobby of City Hall. A special program will also be held in the Lawson Lobby from 1:00-3:00 pm. This program is free and open to the public.

The theme for this year’s program is: ‘The Journey to be Free: Alexandria’s Contrabands and Freedmen Cemetery Memorial’. The kids did an EXCELLENT job on these as they always do. I will be posting my favorites on our Instagram and social sites in case you can’t make it to City Hall (although I encourage you HIGHLY to do so…). You can view one of my favorites at this link.

After the program, the posters remain on view in the Vola Lawson Lobby until the end of February.

For more information call 703.746.4356.
