Center for Civil & Human Rights

The conference I flew out to Atlanta for had a dinner at the Center for Civil & Human Rights.

The downstairs focused on the civil rights movement in the United States. While moving, it was also somber.

Letter from a Birmingham jail.

March on Washington.

Tribute to four girls killed in a church bombing in Birmngham less than three weeks after the march.

One of the things I was struck by was that at each of the video presentations, they had a box of tissues on the benches.

Upstairs, they had a room dedicated to the advances in U.S. civil rights, including this great wall of civil rights laws.

There were also some rooms upstairs devoted to the international human rights movement.

Here are my fellow conference attendees.
