BROWNSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – A traveling exhibit commemorating the 50th anniversary of Tennessee sit-ins opens Friday at the West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center in Brownsville.

"We Shall Not Be Moved: The 50th Anniversary of Tennessee's Civil Rights Sit-ins" continues through Jan. 22. The exhibit was organized by the curatorial staff at the Tennessee State Museum in Nashville.

The free exhibit includes photos and artifacts to examine segregation in the state and how resistance developed in black communities.

It covers events in Nashville, Chattanooga, Memphis, Knoxville and elsewhere.
