On Saturday, February 26th, join us at 2:00 pm in the Memphis Room to celebrate the release of Miriam DeCosta-Willis’ new book, Black Memphis Landmarks. At the same time, the Miriam DeCosta-Willis Collection will be made available to the public for the first time.
Mrs. DeCosta-Willis has had a remarkable career as a scholar, a writer and as a civil rights leader, and the collection will include materials from all aspects of her life and career.
Until then, let us tease you with some of the photos from her collection. Approximately 30 photos from the Miriam DeCosta-Willis Collection have been added to the Civil Rights Photograph Collection. Enjoy!
