March on Washington Anniversary Commemorative Map from Ball State University Libraries

The Life of Dr. King on a Map

The Ball State University Libraries’ GIS Research and Map Collection (GRMC) has created a map identifying important locations in the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  The map serves to commemorate the anniversary of the March on Washington on Sunday, August 28.

The map (above, click to enlarge) is based on the book MLK: Journey of a King by Tonya Bolden.  Locations mentioned in the book are depicted on the map.  A timeline of events is featured below the map.

The map is available for research and learning from the GRMC or in digital format from the Libraries’ Cardinal Scholar repository.

For more information, please contact the GRMC at 765-285-1097.
