Civil Rights Photo Exhibit

On Saturday, January 14, at 6pm, the library held the opening reception of “People of the Civil Rights Era Seen in Photographs by Jim Peppler”. This exhibit features photographs Mr. Peppler took while reporting for The Southern Courier, a non-profit weekly Civil Rights newspaper serving Alabama, Mississippi, and Georgia from 1965 -1968. Mr. Peppler shared his experiences photographing the protests and vigils of the Civil Rights Movement in the South; the everyday life of the people who were fighting for their fundamental rights; and the tragic, yet still inspiring, funeral of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The exhibit will be open to the public in the Community Room of the library from January 14 to February 28.
