According to a press release about the event, the exhibit is "traveling across the country on a national, centennial tour featuring the high stakes civil liberties battles of the nation’s past, present, and future."

Singer-songwriter K. Flay will also perform at the show.

The concert takes place on March 9 at 8 p.m. (Doors at 6:30) at 313 Red River St. It is free and open to the public, although primary access will be given to SXSW badge-holders.
