Five Years That Changed Savannah Forever:
Reflecting on the Civil Rights Movement through the W. W. Law Photograph Collection 

November 21 - December 14
5:30-7:30pm, November 21, Opening Reception and Program 

W. W. Law, President of the Savannah Branch NAACP from 1950-1976, left behind a treasure trove of photographs now preserved and accessible to the public through the City of Savannah Municipal Archives. “Five Years That Changed Savannah Forever” draws from the W. W. Law Photograph Collection to reflect on five pivotal years in Savannah’s Civil Rights Movement. Guest curator Dr. Otis S. Johnson, former City of Savannah Mayor, the first African American to attend and graduate from Armstrong State College, and author of From “N Word” to Mayor: Experiencing the American Dream, offers a unique insider’s perspective of the Savannah Movement through the lens of the photographs.
