Civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. spoke at Reynolds Coliseum on July 31, 1966, following a 1,800-person march where the Ku Klux Klan protested his appearance. Margaret Baker, a doctoral student in NC State's Communication, Rhetoric and Digital Media program, has produced and curated a digital installation and a short documentary film that tells the full story of that day's events and its impact. The documentary features newly discovered color film footage of both the Klan and King. The installation features recently developed black-and-white images of the event.

You are welcome to view the documentary, walk through the digital exhibit and participate in a discussion about your experience.
