On August 9, decades of South Carolina history will be removed from public display, repackaged and placed in climate control storage at various libraries at the University of South Carolina. The Justice for All: South Carolina and the American Civil Rights Movement exhibit has been open to the public since February. It uses oral history recordings, film clips, photographs, postcards, diaries and manuscripts to highlight largely overlooked chapters in the history of the movement. University professor and director of the school’s Center for Civil Rights History and Research, one of several deartments that worked on this exhibit, talks with SC Public Radio's Thelisha Eaddy about how the exhibit is impacting American life today and what's next for the items that make up the exhibit.
