MINE EYES HAVE SEEN


The exhibition presently being featured in the D.R.E.A.M. Gallery of the National Park Service Visitor Center is "MINE EYES HAVE SEEN". This exhibition features photographs that capture the struggle of the twentieth century Civil Rights Movement and the delivery of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.‟s historic "I Have a Dream" speech. Bob Adelman used his love of photography to record this historic moment through the lens of his camera to present the Civil Rights Movement as a human rights story. This exhibit includes photographs, a replica of the Lincoln Memorial, and the reflecting pool.
