Exhibit Information:
The King Center Imaging Project Exhibit consists of hundreds of digitally preserved speeches, sermons and correspondence of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as part of an unprecedented effort to showcase the work of the civil rights leader.

With the help of JPMorgan Chase and The King Center in Atlanta, a team of more than 300 people, including U.S. veterans and students, have digitized more than 200,000 pieces of paper, including Dr. King’s I Have a Dream speech, the Letter from Birmingham Jail and his Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech.

Those documents are now traveling around the country in an interactive display called The King Center Imaging Project. This interactive booth encourages visitors to share their own dreams on an illuminated Dream Wall.

More information and a full archive of the project are available at www.thekingcenter.org/archive.
