Exhibit reflects on King's 'Dream'

A photo exhibition reflecting local impressions of the impact of the Civil Rights movement will be on display from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday, April 2, through Sunday, April 8, in the Frederick Douglass Institute, located in 302 Morey Hall on the River Campus.

As part of the weeklong display of the exhibition "Martin Luther King's Dream Project," the anniversary of King's assassination will be marked with a reception at 4 p.m. Wednesday, April 4, at the Douglass Institute.

The exhibition, which is free and open to the public, uses King's "I Have a Dream" speech from the 1963 march on Washington as a starting point to explore how personal beliefs and behavior have been affected by legislation granting voting rights and the desegregation of public places.

The exhibition includes 20 photographs made last fall by children and adults from such local agencies as Baden Street Settlement, the Compeer Program, Ibero-American Development Corp., South West Area Neighborhood Association (SWAN), and the Urban League of Rochester.

The exhibition is sponsored by the Douglass Institute, the George Eastman House, the Eastman Kodak Company, the Democrat and Chronicle, Monroe Community College, Wegmans, and WHEC-TV 10 NBC.

For more information, contact the Douglass Institute at x5-7235.
