Making Peace Stockholm was presented in The Nobel Prize Museum, Stortorget, during 50 weeks from September 29 to September 15, 2019.
Curator Ashley Woods worked over a three year period (2015 - 2018) with The Nobel Prize Museum, in Stockholm, Sweden to produce the exhibition "A Right to Freedom - Martin Luther King, Jr.", which it then presented for an entire year between September 2018 - September 2019.
The opening marked two major commemorations: the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. which happened on April 4, 1968.
Opening the exhibition was Ms. Bernice A. King, CEO of The King Center, Atlanta and daugther of Martin Luther King, Jr., and Coretta Scott King. Ms. King then took part in a panel discussion together with curator Ashley Woods and historian Dr. Karchiek Sims-Alvarado, chaired by museum director Olov Amelin.
Merchandise related to King's work and legacy were on sale at the Nobel Prize Museum shop. This included all of King's own books.
Produced by The Nobel Prize Museum, Stockholm,
in association with The King Center and The King Estate.

As we commemorate the 50th anniversary of my father’s death, I wish to commend the Nobel Prize Museum for its decision to dedicate a new exhibition to his life’s work, and the promotion of human rights.
