If you have been looking for a good reason to get to the Field Museum besides the Pirates exhibit check out Road to Freedom: Photographs of the Civil Rights Movement 1956-1968. It has been running since June 5 and will end on September 7. This photo exhibit of Civil Rights snapshots taken by professional and amateurs highlight the rawness of the time period intensified in a way only possible through a photograph.
The Chicago resident admission price to the museum is $21.00 for adults and $19.00 for students with an ID. The upcoming free Monday’s are August 10th and August 25th. For more information visit: http://www.fieldmuseum.org/exhibits/temporary_exhib.htm
