A Past That Won’t Rest: Images of the Civil Rights Movement in Mississippi

An exhibition of 50 historic photographs by photographer Jim Lucas—A Past That Won’t Rest: Images of the Civil Rights Movement in Mississippi—will be on display February 26 through March 17 at the University of South Carolina Beaufort Center for the Arts Gallery. The black & white photographs depict iconic events of the civil rights movement, taken by the late Jim Lucas between 1964 and 1968. These beautifully shot and meticulously restored images capture the courage and persistence of those who organized to overcome oppression. An opening reception and book signing will be held February 28 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.
