About the vMLK Project

The Virtual Martin Luther King (vMLK) Project enables visitors to the North Carolina State University Hunt Library to participate in self-guided tours as well as instructor-guided and/or public exhibitions of the six components of the vMLK project. Additionally, other libraries and museums are invited to bring the vMLK project to their institutions for various types of exhibitions. Finally, scholars, students, and members of the public are invited to access features of all six components of the project through the project website.
