An interactive civil rights exhibit, is being proposed for Georgia’s State Capitol. The exhibit will tell the story of Georgia’s role in women’s suffrage and civil rights. Senator Emanuel Jones of Decatur, submitted a resolution to the Georgia State Legislature; that would help bring a dynamic digital display, promoting civil and human rights to the fourth floor of the State Capitol.
Jones stated, that the goal of the exhibit according to the resolution, is to “provoke personal curiosity about civil and human rights in visiting school children and adults. By telling the story of Georgia’s role in the Women’s Suffrage and Civil Rights movements in the United States”. The interactive presentation, will span the period of time from the 1920’s to the early 1970’s.
