In nearby Birmingham the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute "Signifies that Birmingham does not hide from its past... The Institute recognizes the redemptive importance of memory. It is both a time capsule, and a modern day think-tank focused on seeking equitable solutions to common problems. In some ways the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute functions as a town square where the community gathers to discuss common concerns. It is a place where yesterday's struggles inspire a brighter tomorrow. It is a meeting ground for the makers of everyday history, and for those who write about the present," said Odessa Woolfolk, founding president of the institute.
