Hall Heritage Center


About the project:

This visual project’s mission was to share the untold history of David Hall, a Black Alabama farmer who played a pivotal role in the Civil Rights Movement. Hall opened his property to protesters like Martin Luther King, Jr. and John Lewis during the Selma to Montgomery March to provide safe refuge for them to rest, away from white landowners and community members who wished to disrupt their mission.

Hall risked his livelihood and family’s safety in a decision that changed the trajectory of the history and life of Black people in America. His courage inspired other Black farmers to follow suit.
