Final Update: Culture and Resistance: Civil Rights Photography – Memphis 1968

As a conclusion to the three year project researching and exhibiting my photographic essay, the completed exhibition, thesis paper and didactic panels, minus three photographic prints, are now in the permanent collection of the Special Collections at University of Memphis.  One of the two prints not included in the donation is now housed in the Workers Interfaith Network office in Memphis, TN and the other two were given to the family of the now deceased Mr. Lyles Caldwell, a sanitation worker during the 1968 strike.

Additionally, a facsimile of the photographic essay and exhibition has been accepted into the permanent collection of the Human Rights Education Institute in Couer d’Alene, Idaho.
