Please join us on Tuesday, October 5 from 4-5:30 pm for the opening reception of the Risking Everything exhibit for a presentation by exhibit curator Michael Edmonds. Light refreshments will be served.
Accompanying this exhibit will be programs featuring opportunities to explore, learn, and engage in meaningful reflection and conversation about the importance of the civil rights movement today. These programs will feature local, regional, and national speakers who bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to share with our audiences. Every program will be free, and the public is invited to participate.
