SPLC Seeks Information, Artifacts, Related to Civil Rights Movement

In preparation for a new Civil Rights Memorial Center, researchers at the Southern Poverty Law Center are seeking additional information about people killed during the 1954 to 1968 modern-day Civil Rights Movement.

The Center also is collecting artifacts that depict the hatred, dangers and violence that civil rights workers and African Americans faced during that era. Anyone with helpful information should contact the Center.
