The stories of the American civil rights movement and the global human rights movement are intimately linked. The Center for Civil and Human Rights offers a space to tell these stories, presenting them visually to create personal connections with visitors.
What if a new approach could help you understand human rights on a grand scale?
Narratives unfold as visitors travel through immersive, multimedia galleries created in collaboration with director George C. Wolfe and human rights activist Jill Savitt.
“This is communal storytelling.”
The third gallery is a chapel-like space dedicated to Martin Luther King, Jr.
A rotating exhibit of personal papers is shown in archival cases alongside a projection of the phrase “I Have a Dream” in 25 different languages. The gallery is meant to foster quiet reflection as visitors read and contemplate Dr. King’s words.
