Posted: Updated:
THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

At one south Georgia church you can find a piece of black history no matter which direction you turn.

New Jerusalem Missionary Baptist Church has put on an exhibit every February since 1978, this year's theme is Civil Rights in America.

Curator Juanita Chester has seen the church's collection of black history artifacts grow a lot.

"It started with a few posters, that were put on the wall but since that time, we've grown to be one of the largest exhibits in Thomasville," said exhibit curator Juanita Chester.

After each tour visitors take a quiz and can win prizes.
