Experience the Speech
As with many significant events in history, the events that led up to Dr. Martin Luther King’s delivery of his speech, “A Creative Protest,” in February 1960 are, in some ways, as important as the speech itself. These events help us to understand how this particular speech came to be delivered by this particular person on this particular day in this particular church and city.
Historic archival photographs, research materials and documentaries provide the basis for the visual aspects of the vMLK project. Participants experience a historical timeline for the events leading up to the 1960 speech and its location,a timeline of the development of the vMLK project and an overview of the phases and elements.
