 K(NO)W Justice K(NO)W Peace is a community-created exhibit about police-involved shootings throughout the nation and in Charlotte. Co-created with activists and law enforcement, the media, students, clergy and civic leaders, K(NO)W Justice K(NO)W Peace explores the historical roots of the distrust between police and community, tells the human stories beyond the headlines, and engages viewers in creating constructive solutions. The exhibition also captures the voices of local police, protesters, emergency personnel, faith leaders and others reflecting on their personal experiences during Charlotte's protests.

The exhibit features photographer Alvin C. Jacobs Jr.'s powerful images of local and national protests and compelling displays curated by Dr. Tiffany Packer and students at Johnson C. Smith University. A community-response section looks at the meaning of the Charlotte Protests--highlighting the diverse perspectives held by community stakeholders and others impacted by recent events.
