Birmingham's Traveling Civil Rights Exhibit is on the road. Mayor William Bell will be in Atlanta Friday, January 11, to unveil the exhibit at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change. The exhibit will be on display at The King Center for one month.

Throughout this year, which marks the 50th anniversary of the civil rights movement in this country, the exhibit will make stops in Washington, D.C., New York City, New Orleans, Columbia, South Carolina, Jackson, Mississippi, Montgomery and Selma before returning to Birmingham in September. It will be here for the September commemoration of the bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church.

The exhibit has been on display at Birmingham City Hall since October, 2012. For more information on other events planned for this 50th anniversary of civil rights in Birmingham, visit www.50yearsforward.com
