Jason Miller will present “When MLK and the KKK Met in Raleigh” on Wednesday, Jan. 15, 2020 at 7 p.m. in Witherspoon Cinema. A gallery opening and reception will follow in the African American Cultural Center Art Gallery on the second floor of Witherspoon Student Center.

The exhibit, which will remain up through February, features never-before developed photos recovered from archival research and explores the implications that continue to surround this history of white supremacy.

Miller is a professor of English at NC State and a 2019-20 scholar-in-residence in the African American Cultural Center. In his King’s First Dream project, Miller published the first known recording of King’s 1962 speech in Rocky Mount, North Carolina, in which he previewed some of the themes of the seminal 1963 “I Have a Dream” speech in Washington, D.C. The speech is now online at kingsfirstdream.com.

Registration is not required.
