If you have never visited the Civil Rights Institute, this would be a good time to do so. In addition to the art exhibit, another exhibit titled Darkness into Life, Alabama Holocaust Survivors Through Photography and Art, is on display. Powerful images and personal stories from Alabamians impart the history of these survivors of one of the ugliest episodes in the history of the world.
