Monroe Gallery :: The Long Road From Selma To Ferguson

“The exhibition comes at a time of heightened awareness, not only from the 50th anniversary of Martin luther King’s march and the acclaimed film “Selma” but also as Baltimore and Ferguson, Missouri, and other American cities grapple with conflicts across the racial divide. The exhibition features iconic photographs from important keystones of the civil rights movement to the present day.”

– Sidney & Michelle Monroe
