Civil Rights Poster Displayed in Helm 100

Martin Luther KingThe display is a multi-poster exhibit honoring the struggle for civil rights from the time of Fredrick Douglas and Harriet Tubman through the 1950s and 60s to the present day. Featured among the posters are images of the first attempts at school integration, a segregated water fountain and a tragic lynching from 1911. Some of the images are disturbing but it is reminder of the not-so-recent past and how far we have progressed as a society.
