Martin Luther King, Jr. birth home

Location: Martin Luther King, Jr. birth home on Auburn Avenue

Date taken: June 26, 2012

Growing up in Atlanta, I visited The King Center many times on school trips and when friends and family  came into town. The Center is one of Atlanta’s top tourist destinations, with more than a million visitors each year. This past week, I walked along Auburn Avenue, where The King Center, Dr. King’s birth home and Ebenezer Baptist Church are located, as part of a Flux Projects tour. As our group of more than 90 people learned about the historic street, I was reminded again of the great impact of Dr. King’s life and that this famous destination is not just for tourists.
