MLK Weekend at the African American Museum in Philadelphia

The African Museum in Philadelphia and Citizens Bank are teaming up for a rich schedule of events during MLK Weekend.  This year’s theme is “Media and the Movement”, which explores how the civil rights movement inspired partnerships between individual activists/organizations and the press. While the mainstream media often offered a larger audience, the Black press offered access to a more targeted, sympathetic group of potential supporters and collaborators. Dr. King and other leaders learned how to use these outlets to better serve their goals.  I spoke to Patricia Wilson Aden, President and CEO of AAMP and Dan Fitzpatrick, President of Citizens Bank which is sponsoring the activities.
