Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. for the Proclamation’s centennial.

The original documents will be on view from 10am - 7 pm on Friday, October 5 and from 10 am - 5 pm on Saturday, October 6 at the Burchfield Penney. Admission for this exhibition is free. Tours for groups can be arranged by calling 716-878-3156. Please note that space for groups is limited, and we will do our best to accommodate requests.
