The Long Walk to Freedom Museum Exhibit is an inter-generational history exhibition celebrating the work of twelve civil rights activists of the 1960s. The exhibit brings together archive photographs, contemporary portraits, a graphic timeline (developed in collaboration with the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture), an interactive DVD kiosk and the poignant recorded impressions of Bay Area high school students who interviewed the civil rights veterans.
