Del Mar College Black History Month Display: Civil Rights in America


Description:

Recognizing the 50th anniversary of the 1964 Civil Rights Act includes a display at Del Mar College’s William F. White, Jr. Library.

Featured items focusing on the 1964 Civil Rights Act include a copy of hearings in Jackson, Mississippi, from the United States Commission on Civil Rights; audio recordings of Malcolm X; a book describing 16 people who gave their lives for justice and equality; an article from the July 1964 issue of Life Magazine that describes the 75-day legislative filibuster that 18 Southern Senators held to oppose Civil Rights Act legislation; and books about the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) and the Congress for Racial Equality (CORE).

Anyone too young to have lived through this period should come see some of the primary sources that describe the atmosphere and events of the times.

Anyone who lived through those times can review how history-making events were documented.

The exhibit is on display through Feb. 28 and is free and open to the public.
