The 2015 and 2017 exhibits were very intentionally displayed at the beautiful YMI Cultural Center on Eagle Street in Asheville, in what remains of the Asheville African-American historical district.

The exhibit honored the accomplishments of courageous historical figures as well as currently engaged activists working toward greater justice with numerous issues/problems.
