Description

The assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 50 years ago was a monumental loss for the country and world, but it’s hard to imagine another place where that tragedy was felt as profoundly as in King’s hometown. As riots broke out in cities across America, Atlanta prepared to host Dr. King’s funeral procession, which drew an estimated 200,000 mourners. The eyes of a troubled nation focused on the capital of the South as it hosted the biggest funeral in the city’s history.

An intimate photography exhibition opening, "Weeping May Endure for a Night: The Funeral of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Through the Lens of Declan Haun," takes guests back to those difficult days in April 1968. The 25 photographs were captured by the late Haun, a Chicago freelance photojournalist.
