National Center for Civil and Human Rights
Scheduled to open May 2014 in the heart of Downtown Atlanta, The National Center for Civil and Human Rights will narrate and bring to life the American Civil Rights Movement, and serve as a primer on human rights and contemporary human rights issues across the globe, personalizing each experience for the visitor. In addition, The Martin Luther King gallery will exhibit the leader’s personal papers and writings. All together, they will become the basis for an ongoing dialogue on human rights in the world today. The mission of the Center is to explore the universal search for a secure human existence in a way that inspires vigilance and leadership among future generations.
Rockwell Group is designing the center’s exhibition spaces in collaboration with director, writer and producer George C. Wolfe and human rights expert and activist Jill Savitt. Additional exhibition elements are being designed for the public spaces and lobbies. Visitors will engage with the Civil Rights Movement through immersive storytelling spaces combining graphics, multi-media environments, installations, individual interactive kiosks, and group interactive stations.
