Fighting Back

Thursday night we held the members' only preview party for the new exhibit: Fighting Back: The 1923 KKK Trials. We had a packed house with over 70 people in attendance. We send a shout-out to Wildfire Restaurant for the wonderful food, Cindy Anderson for the drinks, and Lisa David (Williamson County District Clerk) for bringing the original trial documents for everyone to see.

Friday night was, of course, First Friday in downtown Georgetown. Fighting Back drew big crowds (well, and the food and drinks) and we had over 300 people visit us between 6:00 and 8:00 pm. Today, the Austin American-Statesman featured an article about the exhibit.

Here are a couple of photographs of the exhibit. Come by and see it for yourself!
