The Designers Behind the Exhibits

Thursday's grand opening of the Selma Interpretive Center's second
 and third-floor exhibits included the hospitality of exhibit designers
 John Wood and Linda Byers.
 As employees of the National Park Service's regional office in Atlanta,
 the pair designed, built and installed the new exhibits
 depicting the 1965 Selma-to-Montgomery Voting Rights March
 and the Courageous Eight activists. 

"We wanted to recognize not only the Courageous Eight
 but other individuals as well," Byers said.
 Woods built the background for the second-floor exhibit (shown in photo),
 and Byers designed the Courageous Eight banners that hang
 in the third-floor meeting room.
