Content retrieved from news clippings, FBI reports and biographical book, From Selma to Sorry: The Life and Death of Viola Liuzzo, Mary Stanton.

The booklet was designed after matching-teaching aid books where the user has to flip panels/pages to complete or define various images. I redesigned the book as more of a memory book. All panels are not arranged to read as 1 image but are instead mix-matched in most segments to replicate the retelling and mixture of stories and memories. An intro page is included to briefly explain who Viola Liuzzo was. The concluding page gives information about efforts to revitalize her park and a weblink to join or learn more. Article and book citations are noted with the images throughout the book.

The panels were later created as another version of the book.
