Women's Voices for Civil Rights

Portraits of Mae Jemison, Fannie Lou Hamer, Rosa Parks, and Grace Thorpe, women advocates for civil rights

Coming Soon!

Generously funded by a 2021 grant from the Breman Foundation of Atlanta, this eight-panel traveling exhibit celebrates women and girls who advocated for civil rights in the United States. Featuring colorful illustrations by young female artists Scarlett Green and Julia Guevara, this exhibit is geared toward students as young as third grade. The exhibit includes profiles of civil rights advocates from the past, as well as more recent examples of activism, and it defines key vocabulary for students and teachers. We hope that visitors' face-to-face encounters with this history will inspire them to learn more about the past and its significance today. 

Please email us to inquire about availability of this traveling exhibit for your organization.
