Destination Freedom: A Look Back


Over the past two years, you all have taken a journey with us as we paid tribute to the Civil Rights Movement through Destination Freedom: Civil Rights Struggles Then and Now; a series of exhibits, programs, dialogues and more. Destination Freedom examined, explored and honored the anniversaries of events which changed the history of the South and the country, for everyone. Within this time we have hosted over 10 exhibits, presented and participated in just as many programs, screened numerous films detailing the era and even several “Freedom Forums” and online conversations around civil rights issues; we even had a surprise engagement! What was your favorite exhibit and program? 

Here is a look back…
