So reads the introduction to the exhibit, "The Road to the Promised Land: Martin Luther King Jr. & the Civil Rights Movement--Perspectives in the 1990s," which examines the Civil Rights Movement from the mid-1950s through the present. The 40-poster exhibit includes photographs, texts and quotations from the movement, which changed the face of the nation. Produced by the Texas Humanities Resource Center as an update to its successful exhibit "Martin Luther King Jr. & the Civil Rights Movement," which covered the movement from 1955 to 1968, the new exhibit addresses current civil rights concerns with new perspectives and provides an objective and thought-provoking view of a crusade that continues to have a profound impact on our lives.
The exhibit will open on Jan. 15 and run through Feb. 28. Admission is free. Schatten Gallery hours are: 8 a.m. to midnight, Monday-Thursday; 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday; 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday; noon to midnight Sunday. Call 727-6861 for more information.
