Public Program, Walking Tour Martin Luther King in Boston Walking Tour registration required 30 June 2018.Saturday, 3:00PM - 4:30PM There is a $10 per person fee (no charge for MHS Fellows and Members or EBT cardholders).

As a doctoral student at Boston University’s School of Theology, Martin Luther King, Jr., spent some of his formative years walking the streets of Boston and living in the South End. His life in Boston was King’s first immersive experience outside of the segregated South and while he experienced the de facto racism of the North he also enjoyed the acceptance of the BU and Boston area communities. This tour will guide visitors through areas of Boston where King lived and socialized, where he met and courted Coretta Scott, and where he returned later at the height of the Civil Rights Movement to deliver powerful speeches on the struggle for racial and economic equality.
