Rosa Parks Museum will display “MJ Obscura” by Amalia Amaki, an exhibit exploring the life and legacy of Michael Jackson through photos and mixed-media art, in November.
 
The exhibit is intended to showcase the traits and beliefs of Jackson as a person, rather than a celebrity. 

“While a part of his intent was obviously to entertain, there is a culturally intelligent and politically astute side of Michael Jackson that has not been seriously explored,” said Georgette Norman, director of the Rosa Parks Museum. “Amaki’s body of work introduces a few basic concepts that will be elaborated on and more fully developed in subsequent artwork and a book in progress of the same title.”
