Black History Month

Black History Month

The theme for the 2017 Black History Month exhibit is “March to Freedom”. This exhibit will be open to the public from February 2nd thru March 11th and will feature a new photographic exhibit by UT Austin’s Briscoe Center and the LBJ Presidential Library that celebrates the 50th anniversaries of the civil rights marches in Selma, Alabama, and the 1965 Voting Rights Act. “March to Freedom” features rare photographs of ‘Bloody Sunday’ on the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma (March 7, 1965); documents, quotes and images that celebrate the Selma-to-Montgomery marches; and photos from the LBJ Library’s 2014 Civil Rights Summit.
