Event Navigation

NC State researchers, led by Victoria Gallagher, a professor of communication, will immerse community members in one of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s most iconic speeches on Saturday, Feb. 15, 2020. King delivered this speech, originally titled “A Creative Protest” but later referred to by King and others as “Fill Up the Jails,” on Feb. 16, 1960 at White Rock Baptist Church in Durham.

The Virtual MLK (vMLK) event will take audiences back in time by leveraging the James B. Hunt Jr. Library’s 270-degree visualization capabilities, allowing you to virtually walk around the historic sanctuary, hear a re-creation of King’s speech and virtually sit with congregation members. Events at the Hunt Library will include a choral performance, family activities, guided tours and a community discussion on advocacy.

Join us for these exciting activities, tours and discussions. Experience the speech, reflect on King’s words and celebrate his legacy.

Registration is not required.
