Pictures tell the story in Civil Rights exhibit
CHAPEL HILL (WTVD) -- Every picture tells a story--of demonstrations against segregation in Chapel Hill, during the 1960's.
They're part of an exhibit inside The Marian Cheek Jackson Center on Rosemary Street, for Civil Rights celebration weekend.
The faces in the photos are familiar to some who see them here.
"I have friends who are related to some of these people who marched and wanted to help protest against racism, " high school student Genesis Flores said.
One particular photo is that of 10- year- old Carolyn Reams with a picket sign. Today as an adult, she remembers, "We saw a lot of people in the street getting arrested on that particular day. So it really makes a difference to look back and say thank God I'm here today. I can look at that picture and say we made it."
Pictures and more have been collected in a book by the photographer called Courage in the Moment.
