The Greenville-Butler County Public Library is hosting “Remembering the Past, Pressing Toward the Future,” an exhibit of Civil Rights era memorabilia from the collection of Mrs. Willie Mae Robinson, on March 3-7 in the library’s main Community Room.
Exhibit hours will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday-Friday, and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday.
Also, on Saturday, March 7 at 11 a.m. the Library will host Georgette Norman, former director of the Rosa Parks Museum at Troy University, for a special speaking engagement.
A native of Montgomery, Norman partnered with the Smithsonian Institute Traveling Exhibition Services to develop “361 Days: The Montgomery Bus Boycott Story” for the 50th Anniversary of the Boycott.
Norman retired as director of the museum in September 2014. The event is free to the public and light refreshments will be served.
The exhibit is free and open to the public. The exhibit is jointly sponsored by the library, City of Greenville, Greenville Parks & Recreation Department and Greenville Area Chamber of Commerce.
