The nondescript office tucked away in an unremarkable complex in a pedestrian part of Albemarle County, decorated with gothic horror monsters, Beatles memorabilia and watercolor paintings seems an unlikely location for a civil rights organization with national influence.

“I love horror movies and The Beatles and the watercolors are mine. I paint to relax,” explains John Whitehead, the moving force behind the Rutherford Institute as a cardboard cutout of John, Paul, George and Ringo peers from one side of a cardboard James Dean while a knife-wielding slasher action figure stands on the desk next to him. “It’s kind of different than the average law office, I guess.”
