Fifty years ago, local African-American parents and their children integrated Huntsville’s all-white public schools. "On the Front Lines of History: Huntsville and the Civil Rights Movement" honors their courage and determination.
This display of historic photos and other memorabilia is on view on the third floor of the Main Library downtown. Admission is free.
The Calhoun Community College Center for the Study of Southern Political Culture and the Huntsville-Madison County Public Library Archives partnered to present "On the Front Lines of History."
The exhibit is made possible through the generosity of Parker Griffith, M.D., former U.S. congressman and state senator. Other contributors include the Alabama Education Association, Calhoun Foundation, Davidson Technologies, Inc., Huntsville City Schools, and the North Alabama Educators Credit Union.
