The National Center for Civil and Human Rights presented a sneak peak of how the exhibitions will be displayed in the new facility now under construction in Downtown Atlanta (adjacent to the World of Coca-Cola and The Georgia Aquarium).
Pictured here is National Center Director Doug Shipman who led a tour through table-top models of exhibits for the planned building. Onlookers include Andrea Young, president of Andy Young Foundation, former UN Ambassador and Atlanta Mayor Andy Young and Atlanta civil rights activist and former Student Movement leader Charles Black.
The design has exhibits on three levels with a total of 42,000 square feet. The model was in Atlanta for only a few days, and provided a 3-D glimpse of the project.
The Atlanta Daily World has a prominent space in the exhibit on Atlanta’s history leading up to the modern civil rights movement. The exhibits follow Atlanta’s civil rights history through to the current fights for human rights around the world. The exhibit space is being designed by well-known artistic producer George Wolf of New York City.
