“I Am A Man” Exhibit and VR Experience

Opening Wednesday, January 16

African American Cultural Center Art Gallery
Witherspoon Student Center, 2nd Floor, 5:30 p.m.
Free and open to the public.

The “I Am A Man” exhibit’s award-winning virtual reality experience returns to NC State for a three-week run in the African American Cultural Center’s Art Gallery. Join us for the opening event and visit the exhibit through February 4, 2019.

Created by Assistant Professor of Design Derek Ham, the exhibit features the work of College of Design students who designed museum installations for the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, Tennessee as part of its MLK50 Celebration in 2018.

Participants experience the perspective of an African American sanitation worker during the 1968 sanitation workers’ strike in Memphis and the civil rights movement before and immediately after the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr.
