TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (WIAT) — Some rarely seen photos from the Civil Rights movement are making their debut on Monday.

The photos are part of a traveling exhibit that is part of the University of Alabama’s “Through The Doors” celebration.

The photos document the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing, George Wallace standing in the schoolhouse doorway and many other significant  moments from the Civil Rights movement in Alabama.

Most of the photos have never been published.

The exhibit is free to the public and will run through June 14, 2013.

It’s part of a series of events commemorating the 50-year anniversary of the desegregation of the University of Alabama.
