This 15-panel exhibit was created in 2015 to honor San Diego’s living leaders in the Civil Rights Movement as we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. The exhibit is still educating and inspiring those who are able to see it. It is available and seeking continuous opportunities to be displayed. The panels are easily installed banners that can be hung on walls, display panels or easels. Please contact Leah Goodwin if you are interested in having the exhibit displayed at your location. (619) 840-1206
Please visit The San Diego Experience of the Civil Rights Movement on Facebook for up-to-date information on the current location where the banners can be viewed, as well as other activities surrounding the banners and the leaders we continue to acknowledge and honor.
