The Alliance Theatre, in conjunction with The King Center, and with support from the family of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., are excited to announce the King Family Hats Exhibit.

The King Family Hats Exhibit will be on display in the Azadi Galleria at Woodruff Arts Center from May 14 – June 16, 2024.

The 20 hats in the display were worn by the women of the King family, including…

  • Alberta Williams King (Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s mother, wife of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Sr., the 3rd Senior Pastor of Ebenezer, and Daughter of Rev. Dr. Adam Daniel (A.D.) Williams, the 2nd Senior Pastor of Ebenezer)
  • Coretta Scott King (Martin Luther King Jr.’s wife)
  • Christine King Farris (Martin Luther King Jr.’s only sister)
  • Naomi Barber King (Martin Luther King Jr.’s only sister-in law, wife of his brother Rev. Alfred Daniel (A.D.) Williams King)

Following a longstanding tradition, the King women wore hats every Sunday. Some of the hats symbolize historic moments in the Civil Rights Movement and in the history of the King family.

The exhibit runs in concurrence with the world premiere of The Preacher’s Wife, a new musical inspired by the beloved, blockbuster film and featuring an original score by actor, comedian, and writer Tituss Burgess (TV’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) and book by actress, producer, and writer Azie Dungey (TV’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Harlem, Girls5eva).

The Preacher’s Wife will run on select dates from May 15 – June 16 on the Coca-Cola Stage at Alliance Theatre. 

Access to the exhibition is FREE during normal business hours of the Woodruff Arts Center and during performances of The Preacher’s WifeTickets for The Preacher’s Wife can be found here.
