Exhibit: “Making the Movement: Objects, Objectives, and Civil Rights”
October 8, 2013 - December 31, 2013
A traveling exhibit that explores the impact that material culture had on the success of the Civil Rights Movement, “Making the Movement: Objects, Objectives, and Civil Rights” will be at Allegheny through December 31. The objects — pinbacks, pamphlets, mailers, posters, and flyers — helped the Civil Rights Movement achieve its objectives of putting an end to segregation and disfranchisement, and each artifact reflects the evolving goals and tactics of those involved in the struggle for equality. While the exhibit is at Allegheny, it will also include artifacts that are specific to Allegheny College as well as photographs from the Robert H. Jackson Center. “Making the Movement” debuted at the Jackson Center in March 2013.
