Against the backdrop of political upheaval in both the United States and his native Sudan, Khalid Albaih, embarks on a series of journeys to Washington, D.C., Houston,Memphis, and New York, exploring the shared struggle for human and civil rights between the Arab World and the United States. Khalid and CULTURUNNERS start their journey in Washington D.C. in 2016, then drive cross-country through the Southern US before arriving in Memphis, TN for a historic talk at the National Civil Rights Museum, located at the former Lorraine Motel, where civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated on April 4, 1968. In 2019, CULTURUNNERS invited Khalid back to the US to present his first major US exhibition, 'Stumbling is Not Falling' at ArtX in Manhattan's meatpacking district.
