Civil Rights AP Writer visits Civil Rights Institute

Former Associated Press writer Jim Purks shared his experiences with people in Albany Thursday night.

Museum Director Frank Wilson says it's important to share the history of the movement with the young and old.

"It's important that we stay engaged that our children and our children's children understand that where they are didn't just happen," Wilson said. "People died, people bled, lives were lost as a result and I thank its important that we never forget our history."

The museum's next community night is scheduled for August 28th.
