Greensboro, NC

Greensboro was an incredible success as over 3,000 people viewed the memorial. One TV station shot live coverage at 5pm and 6pm one evening. The memorial was front page news with large photos and an editorial about Martin Luther King and Eyes Wide Open was printed on the front of the opinion page.

One anecdote shows the appreciation of the folks in Greensboro. Marq Anderson, our AFSC staff person who travels with the exhibit, was in a Greensboro coffee shop when he heard a whisper behind him, "That's the Eyes Wide Open guy." He got up to pay for his coffee and when he turned around fifteen people stood up and applauded.
