    A tighter focus on true black revolutionary struggle is needed to highlight the real energy of that marvelous era ,absent the cult of personality that seems to be an over played commercial ploy ,rathet than a continuing and evolving Institution for human rigjts and black liberation

    Loved the fact that they had a LGBT exhibit. The one time Birmingham did but have to be dragged licking and screaming into the modern world.
