The Carrie Meek-James N. Eaton, Sr. Southeastern Regional Black Archives Research Center and Museum has a special Black History Month exhibition: The King Center Imaging Project.
From the C&G Partners website:
C&G Partners created a visual brand, exhibit and interactives for
a new initiative of JPMorgan Chase & Co., in conjunction with the
King Center in Atlanta. The King Center Imaging Project digitizes tens
of thousands of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s inspirational and historic
documents for public use. The firm’s touring exhibit allows visitors to
study and interact with Dr. King’s documents in high resolution and
experience first-hand the process of digitization used in the lab.
The project includes interactive stations featuring four of Dr.
King’s most famous written works: the “I Have a Dream” speech, the
“Letter from Birmingham Jail”, his Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech,
and the “Drum Major Instinct” sermon. The documents come alive with
multimedia annotations, asides, images and videos. Visitors can write
their own dream, have it scanned, and add it to a wall with hundreds
more. The exhibit includes drawers full of high-resolution, annotated
document reproductions for visitors to hold and examine, and a video
about the digitization project. C&G Partners also created the visual
brand, exhibit staff livery, takeaways and other items.
exhibition will be available in the FAMU Black Archives until March 8, 2013.
