CIVIL RIGHTS ARTIFACTS

A Montgomery (Ala.) Sheriff’s Department booking photo of Rosa Parks taken Feb 22, 1956, is shown Friday, July 23, 2004, in Montgomery, Ala. Dozens of photographs from the civil rights-era were recently discovered in a storage room used by the Montgomery County Sheriff’s office. Chief Deputy Derrick Cunningham said he was performing some house cleaning duties when he found a photo-album containing well-preserved mug shots of protesters, including Parks and The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. who were arrested during the Montgomery bus boycott in 1956. (AP Photo/Montgomery County (Ala.) Sheriff’s office)
