Arthur M. Blank Foundation renews commitment to The National Center for Civil and Human Rights
March 13, 2013
The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation recently committed $1.5 million to the National Center for Civil and Human Rights, a cultural institution that will bring exhibits, events and educational programs about human rights to Atlanta. This follows initial support from the Blank family foundation, bringing the total to $2.5 million, and further establishing the organization's goal to promote positive changes in people and communities at large.
In honor of this support, The Civil Rights Gallery in the National Center for Civil and Human Rights will be named The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation. The gallery will feature eight exhibitions that chronicle the fight for African Americans' equal rights in the United States, using a mix of media formats.
"The Center was created from the vision of extraordinary leaders and advocates in the Atlanta community," said CEO of the National Center for Civil and Human Rights Doug Shipman. "We are pleased that Arthur Blank and the Blank Family Foundation support this vision, and join in our effort to honor individuals fighting to secure civil and universal human rights around the world."
