Phil Freelon, the principal architect of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History & Culture, will deliver the keynote address for Duke University’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. commemoration.
Duke community members and the public are invited to the annual service, which will link King’s civil rights legacy to activism in the arts and architecture. The service starts at 3 p.m. in Duke University Chapel, and free parking is available in the Bryan Center Parking Garage.
Freelon, who is from Durham, will talk about the museum’s connection to King’s legacy and will show dramatic slides related to the design of the museum. He will also reflect on the contributions of Julian Abele, the African-American architect of Duke University’s original campus.
