HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT

Untold Stories in A/R

Resurrecting ghosts at Confederate Monuments to tell a more robust story of our Southern Heritage.


Hidden In Plain Sight is a digital portal that brings history to life, using augmented reality to overlay stories of real people, in real time, at sites of Confederate monuments across the South.


Confederate monuments are being noticed, questioned, and toppled. But focusing on the statues alone keeps an essential story hidden: the account of an enslaved and violently subjugated population.


Within Hidden In Plain Sight, you’ll meet people and explore Southern landmarks.

These proof-of-concept stories are designed to be accessed at two of the monuments on the grounds of the North Carolina State Capital in Raleigh. Learn more...

We want to illuminate this larger narrative by highlighting and staying true to the stories of real people – using both their own words as well as dramatized reactions to the monuments that ignore their existence. By educating and entertaining, we can inspire people to understand more of America’s history and how its impacts are still being felt today.
