SCRC Exhibit and Wolf Tales Invitation to Honor MLK Commemoration Week
In honor of MLK Commemoration Week 2022, the Special Collections Research Center has partnered with the NC State University African American Cultural Center, Multicultural Student Affairs, and University Housing to produce an exhibit, “Stories of Solidarity and Change: Celebrating the Legacy of MLK Jr. at NC State,” as well as a special invitation to the campus community to share their stories through Virtual Wolf Tales.
A pop-up display of the exhibit will be in the Talley Student Union lobby on Wednesday January 19, 10am-3pm, and an expanded digital exhibit will be accessible online as well. In addition, the Hill Library Innovation Studio will feature a version of the exhibit through the month of February. We encourage community members to explore the exhibit in the ways that are most available to them, to learn more about the stories of activism and solidarity that are part of our shared campus history.
In addition to the exhibit and other MLK week events, community members are invited to submit short (up to 10-minute) videos of their stories of solidarity through Virtual Wolf Tales. Community members can record themselves on their personal devices and share their stories in response to a set of prompts, or share whatever they feel is most important in reflecting on the legacy of MLK Jr. at NC State:
- What does solidarity at NC State look like to you?
- What are your dreams for the future for solidarity and change at NC State?
- How could resources be used differently to make these dreams happen?
To learn more about the history of Martin Luther King Jr.'s legacy at NC State, you can also explore the SCRC's African American Historical State Timeline and explore our collections through the SCRC website.
