Martin Luther King Library opened in 1971 as the Locust Library. In 1973 it was re-dedicated in honor of Dr. King. In it, you will see a sizable collection of permanent art, some pertaining to Dr. King. It includes a unique accordion book by Amos Paul Kennedy, Jr. which contains Dr. King’s most noted quotations and adinkra symbols associated with the Ashanti people. The King library is slated to be rebuilt entirely in the near future, so come see a part of Milwaukee history before it’s gone!
