TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - With many ceremonies and parades canceled or held virtually in honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on MLK Day, the Texas African-American Museum in Tyler is hosting an outdoor celebration this Monday.

They tell us they plan to social distance and have COVID-19 safety measures in place as folks listen to speakers, singing, and poetry.

They hope to also raise funds to help with upgrades to the building with a drive-through fundraiser.

After the ceremony there will be COVID safety conscience museum tours.
