People of all ages can participate and enjoy African-American culture at the MLK Arts Complex with educational programs, and many public schoolchildren benefit from the special arts activities. The Corridor Gallery and the renowned Elijah Pierce Gallery, named after the famous African-American woodcarver/folk artist, host traveling exhibitions.
