NEH on the Road: For All the World to See

Booth Library is interested in hosting this exhibition to educate patrons about the civil rights movement and to promote awareness of the role of visual media in the struggle for racial equality in the United States during the mid-20th century. Eastern has a diverse population who celebrate various cultures and heritages, and Booth Library has a reputation for providing interesting and diverse exhibits. Booth Library will explore resources using the Africana Studies program, the African American Heritage Committee, and the Tarble Arts Center at Eastern Illinois University. Contact will be made with University faculty to promote awareness of the exhibit and to request their participation in offerings or events scheduled during the exhibition.
