This is the first thing that is seen on a wall when entering the lobby of the Center for Civil and Human rights. This image is also used in their brochure. This image is one representation of what the civil and human rights movement means. In my opinion, all the images are connected showing that if we work together we can achieve the common goal of rights for all.
This world map is located in the human rights area of the museum. Each color represents whether a country is politically free or not and whether they are able to exercise their political rights and civil liberties. Yellow represents the countries that are free, orange represents countries that are partly free and red represents countries that are not free.
This statue is located near the rear of the museum. Each side of the statue includes a quote that can relate to both the civil and human rights movement. The quote on the left was by Margaret Mean and it states, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world.” The quote on the right was from Nelson Mandela and it states, “For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.”
This picture was taken in the human rights area of the museum. The first half of this area is dedicated to teaching us about some of the most famous offenders and defenders of the human rights movement. The top picture is of the defenders and the bottom is of the offenders. The defenders, from right to left, were Mohandas Gandhi, Eleanor Roosevelt, Yelena Bonner, Martin Luther King Jr., Václav Havel, Nelson Mandela, and Estela Barnes de Carlotto. The offenders, from left to right, were Adolf Hitler, Mao Zedong, Joseph Stalin, Pol Pot, Idi Amin, and Augusto Pinochet.
This picture was taken in one of the civil rights areas of the museum. This area of the museum was dedicated to the many people that lost their lives during the civil rights movement. Each pole was filled with pictures of each person and on the back of the lower pictures included a short paragraph which gave information on who the person was and how they lost their life.
Candler Park contains a 2,064 yard golf course that has 9 holes with a par of 31. The above picture is of a sign for par 3. This specific sign is located along Candler Park Drive NE, directly across from The First Existentialist Congregation of Atlanta. This sign is dedicated to Steve Curl and Brother Dan.
This sign explains a piece of historic significance of Candler Park. On July 21, 1864, Sweeny’s Division spent about 24 hours in a line that crossed through the Southwest area of Candler Park. These troops were apart of McPherson’s Army of Tennessee. The troops were halted here because they were crowded and out of line.
These picture are of the Candler Park Playground that was built in 2001. The top two pictures are of the signs placed on the entrance gates for the playground. These signs give information on the playground, such as, the mayor at the time that the playground was built and contributors to the playground. The bottom picture is a picture of the entire playground including the entrance gates that the signs were placed on.
These pictures are of the main entrance for Candler Park. The top left picture is a sign placed on the main gate that presents the information for the park, such as, who erected the park and when it was done. It also presents information, such as, the park committee and the mayor at the time of erection. The top right picture shows the name of the park and its hours. The bottom picture is a full view of the entire park entrance.
