The Virtual Martin Luther King Project: Producing Digital Experiences and Recovering Civil Rights History

Production of a permanent and traveling multimedia exhibition and enhancements to a website exploring a little known but historically significant speech by Martin Luther King Jr.

Support is requested for the production of six components of the Virtual Martin Luther King (vMLK) Project. The production of these six components will enable on-going public exhibitions of the vMLK project both online, via the project website, and in physical spaces such as museums and libraries. The public exhibitions in physical spaces will be produced so that they can be experienced individually (via self-guided tours) and collectively (staged and guided exhibitions). The online exhibitions will include both curricular-guided pedagogical experiences and humanities for the public-guided experiences. Additionally, the production process, particularly as articulated and evaluated through a workshop with humanities advisers and library and museum partners, will provide a template for other humanities scholars working to produce digital programs for the public whether they are tied to physical spaces/locations or fully articulated online for public audiences.
