Voice to the Voiceless: Morehouse College Martin Luther King, Jr. Collection

The Voice to the Voiceless gallery, which exhibits the Morehouse College Martin Luther King, Jr. Collection, has a new, permanent installation, Fragments, which is a metal structure featuring engravings in King’s handwriting illuminated by light. The art piece, designed by Paula Scher and Abbot Miller, captures King’s ideas as they developed on paper, providing an intimate view of the leader’s thought process.

A Legacy of Creative Protest: King & Youth Activism demonstrates how a generation of youth activists, inspired by Dr. King’s rally for equality, helped to transform political landscapes from the Civil Rights era to present-day through innovative means of protest. Through their innovation, the youth of the 1960s galvanized and elevated the movement, subsequently inspiring Dr. King to explore new and creative ways of protesting as well, leaving a legacy that spanned the test of time.

The driving force behind each of Dr. King’s campaigns was his unique and unchanging vision for the world. Repeatedly, he spoke of triumphing over oppression and uniting humankind as one family. He referred to this communal ideal by many names, but most enduringly as the Beloved Community. The digital exhibition, We Share the Dream: King’s Beloved Community examines this ideal. This digital exhibition will be available online at WeShareTheDream.org through April 9.
