The Hall Heritage Center

About the project

The mission of this visual project is to share the untold history of a Black Alabama farmer who played a pivotal role in the Civil Rights Movement. He 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 land owners and community members who wished them harm. This farmer 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.
