“Imaging the Dream” Exhibit and Ribbon-Cutting
Featuring the MLK Imaging Exhibit
Thursday, September 12, 2013
5-7pm
Chesebrough Auditorium
Featured Speaker: Dr. Michael Eric Dyson, Professor, Georgetown University

Courtesy of The King Center in Atlanta, GA and JP Morgan Chase, the Exhibit will be housed in the Duderstadt Center from September 12-20.

The MLK Imaging Exhibit is an interactive experience developed by JP Morgan Chase and The King Center in Atlanta that allows visitors to view documents and images from and about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and other key Civil Rights figures. These landmark documents include the most famous documents such as the “I Have a Dream” speech, notes on the Letter from Birmingham Jail, as well as other speeches, correspondence and sermons of Dr. King. The King Center Imaging Project makes available to the public historical treasures that have been accessible only to researchers–until now. The archive is available to anyone around the world who has access to the Internet.
Dr. Dyson authored I May Not Get There With You: The True Martin Luther King, Jr. Named by Ebony as one of the hundred most influential black Americans, he is the author of 16 books. Dr. Dyson is a frequent commentator on MSNBC, and maintains a national profile as a highly sought-after speaker. His remarks will be thought-provoking and provide a good foundation for a year-long series of dialogue and activities.

Co-sponsors are the Office of the Senior Vice Provost for Academic Affairs; the 2014 North Campus MLK Committee; University Library; the 2014 MLK Symposium Planning Committee; and the University Diversity Council.

The MLK Imaging Exhibit will be housed in The Duderstadt Center from September 12-20.

This event will be a part of an ongoing discussion on race, diversity and inclusion on North Campus and throughout the University.
