The Washington State History Museum will be marking Martin Luther King Jr. Day with an afternoon of special programs beginning at 2 p.m. Monday.

The event, "Dr. MLK: From Slavery, 2 Dreams, 2 Presidency," will open with an address by former Tacoma Mayor Harold Moss and will include poetry readings, a dance performance by the Brick City Krump Dancers, a musical performance by the Henry Foss Gospel Choir and a video tribute titled "Never Would Have Made It" that links King’s legacy to the election of Barack Obama as president of the United States.

Admission to the museum will be free on the holiday.

The museum is at 1911 Pacific Ave. in downtown Tacoma.
