Traveling Panel Exhibition at Bull Street Library, 652-3600

This year marks the 50th anniversary of key events in the Civil Rights Movement and
now citizens across Georgia will have the opportunity to gain a uniquely local
perspective on the struggle against discrimination.

William Alexander Scott III was a photographer in a segregated battalion of the United States Army during World War II. His witness testimony of the liberation of Buchenwald is told in the travelling exhibit “Witness to the Holocaust”, which draws parallels between the Jim Crow laws here and the Nuremberg Race laws of 1935‐1945 implemented in Germany and Nazi-controlled areas of Europe.
