The travelling exhibition “Martin Luther King jr. @ Berlin 1964-2014” isn’t only about the person Dr. Kings, but primarily about persons who are inspired by him and who supported for example the peaceful revolution 1989 in East Germany (GDR). Also the exhibition gives the visitor an insight about how the GDR dealt with discrimination and racism. The students looked at Martin Luther King jr. in different ways and from various perspectives. They are presenting their results in the exhibition in schools and municipalities in Berlin and Brandenburg.The exhibition can be expanded in a creative way by local exhibitors. Apart from this it’s possible to invite contemporary witnesses or to see the TV documentary by A. Kuno Richter “Der King Code”.Starting in February 2017 there is an exhibition game (Actionbound) for teenagers and adults. The visitors can answer questions and solve problems in order to collect points. You can download the Actionbound-App for free in the Google Playstore and Applestore. Have fun!Schools or Universitys in Germany can borrow the hiking exhibition for up to four weeks.
