Ongoing Events

March to Freedom Photo Exhibit

Fall Quarter
The Library, D126

The March to Freedom exhibit by James “Spider” Martin is currently on display in the library. The 30 photos in the exhibit display the disturbing and often brutal opposition to the three non-violent marches of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., John Lewis and other Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) members during the mid-1960s.

The exhibit is on loan from the Dolph Briscoe Center for American History at the University of Texas at Austin and the LBJ Presidential Library, in partnership with Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
