ATLANTA’S NCCHR LAUNCHES A 360-DEGREE VIRTUAL TOUR OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT
When the pandemic closed its doors in March, Atlanta’s National Center for Civil and Human Rights (NCCHR) knew it was essential to find a way to keep its downtown galleries accessible to the general public.
With the technological and creative help of an Atlanta production company, the Center has launched a virtual tour of some of its most impactful exhibits.
“We want people to walk away with the story about how the American Civil Rights Movement has inspired global human rights movements around the world, and its relevance to the civil and human rights struggles we are facing today,” Kurt Reynolds, Development Coordinator at the Center, said.
Utilizing 360-degree filming from Atlanta-based One Stop Productions, users can download the Center’s new app on iPhone or Android devices and begin an immersive educational experience.
