NIH’s Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion partnered with NLM to share photos of Martin Luther King, Jr., and the civil rights movement. Nine poster-size photographs will be on display outside of the auditorium in the Library’s Lister Hill Center until the end of Black History Month, February 28.

As part of the exhibition called “A Day On, Not a Day Off,” visitors are invited to write their reflections.

Early visitors’ comments include—

“Never forget our past.”

“Keep pushing for civil rights for all.”

“Thank you for these powerful images to remind us of our past and inform our future together.”

The exhibition is open from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm weekdays, except federal holidays.
