For Civil Sound Ecology, William Schweigert will re-imagine the sit-in scenes located in downtown Atlanta employed by Committee on Appeal to Human Rights and text from the speech given by Lonnie King addressing the Georgia State NAACP on March 17th,1960 through audio and image. WonderRoot will create the pamphlet from historic material containing information on the overall project as well as a QR code to hear the audio. Schweigert will work with the Lonnie King archive to record 3 audio pieces from significant locations of the sit-ins that correspond with the murals by Shelia Pree Bright.
