About This Collection

For over two decades I have been collecting artifacts from the greatest era in modern history: the Civil Rights Movement.  I am convinced that this history is not taught effectively, but must be. This collection is currently being prepared for museum-readiness and I am exploring all available options to ensure that the collection receives as much public exposure as possible.

The categories of Slavery, Segregation, Civil Rights, and Racism are all important in telling the story.  Though some artifacts can fit in more than one category, I have done my best to choose the category that is most appropriate.  The “Racism” category, while disturbing, is important in telling the story. Without knowing the WHOLE story, the story is incomplete.

The story must be told.
