Omeka Exhibit

The exhibit I am planning in Omeka is going to be a visual examination of the neighborhoods affected by the 1968 D.C. riots.  The exhibit will begin with a page, that has a video containing raw footage of the riots and a map showing the extent of the destruction, to introduce the audience to the subject.  Next, will be a series of pages that contain one to two images of each neighborhood paired with a light amount of text discussing how the area was affected directly by the riots.
