HYDE PARK — The Hyde Park Art Center will celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day with a day of reflection.

The art center, 5020 S. Cornell Ave., will screen a series of free films and documentaries all day Monday.

The teen programs at the art center have selected three films to show, starting at 11 a.m. with “13th,” the 2016 documentary that explores the idea that slavery is being perpetuated through mass incarceration.

At 1:30 p.m., the art center will show “Brother Outsider,” the documentary about Bayard Rustin’s work in the civil rights movement and how his open sexuality forced him to stay in the background.

The series concludes at 3:30 p.m. with “Black Power Mix Tape,” the 2011 documentary that collects footage of the black power movement collected by Swedish filmmakers between 1967-75.

All screenings are free and open to the public.
