“Tragedy and Triumph: The Lives of the Gibbs-Green Survivors” Reception & Exhibition Grand Opening
February 27, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The Gibbs/Green Commemorative exhibition honors the men and women who endured the vicious police attack on the campus of then Jackson State College in May 1970. Despite the terror that they faced 50 years ago, these people and their families have built lives of resiliency, not as victims but as survivors.
Hundreds were impacted directly and indirectly, physically and psychologically, that evening. Even if their names are not known, this exhibition is meant to lift up all of them in recognition of the tragedy that they endured and the triumph they have forged since that fateful night.
