The Alabama State University National Center for the Study of Civil Rights and African American Culture hosted a reception for its supporters.
The Sunday afternoon event thanks donors who have given to support the Center's mission to preserve the history of the Civil Rights Movement. The Center holds tours, exhibitions, programs and other events every year to tell the story of the movement.
Organizers say financial support is critical to ensure that mission is fulfilled.
