In collaboration with Multicultural Student Affairs, the African American Cultural Center, the Office for Institutional Equity and Diversity, Student Leadership and Engagement, NC State Live and Arts NC State, the NC State University Libraries' Special Collections Research Center will celebrate Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy with a selection of images from the university’s archives. The pop-up exhibit — Beloved Community: An Appreciation of Joy, Creativity, and Ancestral Legacy at NC State — will be located in the Student Leadership and Engagement suite (4210) in Talley Student Union throughout the week of the MLK Campus Commemoration, which is Jan. 17-20. The exhibit will also be featured at events throughout the week. To see the list of scheduled events for the week, go to the African American Cultural Center website. 

King defined a “beloved community” as a society based on connection, creativity and justice that is both transformative and restorative. The images in this exhibit illustrate how previous generations have built their own beloved community at NC State and beyond. Explore the images featured in the exhibit and consider:

  • Where do you see yourself in the ancestral legacy of beloved community at NC State? 
  • What do you wish to create and leave behind as part of this legacy?
  • What do you envision in the spirit of justice and hope for the future of your campus community?
