Spotlight: Talkin’ ‘Bout a Revolution: The American Civil Rights Movement, 1954-1970More
The American Civil Rights Movement (1954-1970) intensely transformed American society and inspired similar movements worldwide. Its nonviolent protests and civil resistance for equal citizenship under the law enhanced African-Americans’ self-dignity and collective commitment in the face of white supremacist terrorism. This mini-exhibition includes a display dedicated to the life and career of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., charismatic leader of the Civil Rights Movement and “a drum major for justice and peace” in his letters and publications. The exhibit’s 24 items on display comprise letters, newsletters, photographs, poetry and reports; special items of interest include a 1960 NAACP voting rights comic book, Alex Haley’s 1963 interview of Malcolm X, a 1969 Black Panther Party coloring book, a 1976 Julian Bond for President bumper sticker, an auction catalog for a 2006 planned sale of Dr. King’s papers, and an inscribed copy of Coretta Scott King’s published memoirs.
