Each year, the Birmingham Museum of Art and the Indian Cultural Society co-sponsor a contest that celebrates the connection between Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., two of the greatest leaders of the 20th century.
This year’s participants and winners were recognized at a special reception in honor of Gandhi’s birthday (Gandhi Jayanti) at the Museum on October 17, 2014.
The Museum and the Indian Cultural Society congratulate all of the students who participated in the 2014 Gandhi Jayanti Essay and Poster Contest.
