I Too Am America: Reflections on the Civil Rights Movement
Reception: Monday, January 8, 2018
7:00-9:00 PM, Library Meeting Room
The Civil Rights Movement was one of the transcendent moments in America history. The movement's epic narrative involved
larger than life personalities, demonstrations, boycotts, non-violent protests, and novel new methods of organizing on the local
and national level. It resulted in laws that gave African-Americans the right to equal opportunity in education, employment, voting
rights and helped end legal segregation in American life.
This exhibit will explore visual reflections of a mass movement that was a popular, and sometimes unpopular, struggle for racial equality and justice in the United States.
