Here’s a link to Icons of the Civil Rights Movement, an art and history exhibit celebrating important leaders in civil rights, including Jim Reeb. The artist, Pamela Chatterton-Purdy, has her own story to tell: 

To say that this “movement” was critical in the influence of our lives over the past 45 years is an understatement!

In 2004 my husband and I took a trip through the South, traveling with 100 high school students to all the milestones of the “Movement.” This “Civil Rights Sojourn” ended with a visit to the Lorraine Motel where Dr. King was murdered. This motel is now a powerful Civil Rights Museum.

2008 marks the 40th year since the assassination of MLK. The exhibit, “Icons of The Civil Rights Movement,”will travel during this commemorative year.”


I hope you will pass along this link to people who need to know more about this period in recent US history:
