Photo Museum on Display This Week


Meridian, Miss. A historical talking photo museum is set up in Meridian this week in conjunction with activities for the commemoration of Freedom Summer 1964, a key part of the American Civil Rights Movement.

The pictures displayed at Meridian's Union Station are from teachers and students of the Freedom School in place at that time.

Lenray Gandy attended the school and is in many of the pictures.

"It means a lot to me because I was really involved, not just in the Freedom School but involved in the actual movement, as well, as a child," said Gandy.

The exhibit locations are Union Station and Meridian Public Library, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Friday, and Meridian Museum of Art Wednesday through Friday, also 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
