Human Rights, Human Wrongs

Reading about human rights and seeing the images are two completely different experiences. The Human Rights, Human Wrongs exhibit covers 1945 to the early 90s “featuring more than 200 original press prints.” I didn’t know what to expect but the warning signs by the stairs told me it wasn’t for the faint of heart. The […]
