    Ice cream maker Ben & Jerry's has unveiled a new display at its Vermont factory dedicated to civil rights.

    The display was made in collaboration with the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.

    Company co-founder Jerry Greenfield says the Poor People's Campaign is "as relevant today as it was 50 years ago."
