SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

An opening reception was held Sunday for a new exhibit at Savannah State University.

The exhibit called A Legacy of Leadership: An Exhibition of W. W. Law Artifacts includes momentoes from Law's youth and early days as well as from his career and personal life. Organizers say they wanted to not only honor the Savannah civil rights icon but who he was as a person as well.

"Everyone kind of knows him more as a leader, so we wanted to make it a little personable as well to show that he was human, a human being. And we hope to inspire the visitors to get them to understand that them as ordinary people could do the same as Mr. Law," says Felicia Bell.

The exhibit will be on display until the end of February.
