Jason Miller, a professor of English at NC State and a 2019-20 scholar-in-residence at the African American Cultural Center, will present When MLK and the KKK Met in Raleigh in the cinema at the Witherspoon Student Center. A gallery opening and reception will follow on the second floor of the Witherspoon center in the African American Cultural Center Art Gallery. The exhibit features never-before developed photos recovered from archival research and explores the implications that continue to surround the history of white supremacy.
Miller published the first known recording of King’s 1962 speech in Rocky Mount in his project King’s First Dream. In the speech, King previewed some of the themes in his seminal 1963 I Have a Dream speech in Washington, D.C. The speech is online at kingsfirstdream.com.
