Jones stated, that the goal of the exhibit according to the resolution, is to “provoke personal curiosity about civil and human rights in visiting school children and adults. By telling the story of Georgia’s role in the Women’s Suffrage and Civil Rights movements in the United States”.   The interactive presentation, will span the period of time from the 1920’s to the early 1970’s.
