Honoring the Past Building the Future
Honoring the Past and Building the Future is a photographic mural project about Brunswick's turbulent times during the 60s, where members of the NAACP, Mrs. Georgia Gibbs, co-founder, secretary of the local NAACP and a young Pastor Julius Caesar Hope, amongst others, took direct action by desegregating public areas in Brunswick before the 1964 Civil Rights Act law, laying the foundation for future generations.
