Exhibits

Throughout October, Main Library will showcase three Civil Rights displays and exhibits.

Auditorium and 1st Floor: Durham’s Civil Rights Banners

2nd and 3rd Floor: Oh Freedom Over Me: An Exhibit from the Center for Documentary Studies
The Southern Documentary Project (SDP) was begun by Matt Herron in the summer of 1964 to document the Civil Rights Movement. SDP members recorded the rapid social change taking place in Mississippi and other parts of the South as Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) brought non-southern college students to work on voter registration and education. The Freedom Summer campaign of 1964 targeted Mississippi where black voter registration was the lowest in the country. Freedom Summer was about ordinary people standing up, speaking out against injustice, and risking everything to participate in their own governance.
