A traveling exhibit focusing on events in 1968, the year Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated and how those events shaped American culture, will stop for one day at Clark College in Vancouver, Washington, Wednesday, January 17, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.

The Black History 101 Mobile Museum contains more than 7,000 original artifacts dating from the trans-Atlantic slave trade era to the hip-hop culture. The museum will be located on Clark College’s main campus at 1933 Fort Vancouver Way in Gaiser Hall, Room 150, at the Student Center (view campus map and get directions).

Professor Griff, a founding member of the hip-hop group Public Enemy, will give a keynote address at 1-2 p.m.

Admission is free, but Clark College asks visitors to bring non-perishable food items for its Penguin Pantry and Share House Backpack Program.
