This display (running June 1-June 30) is a glimpse into the African-American experience. The images tell compelling stories of the struggles, strengths, triumphs, and hopes of an oppressed people.
The Black Voices of Dignity display is a glimpse into the African-American experience. The historic images displayed tell compelling stories of the struggles, strengths, triumphs, and hopes of an oppressed people: snapshots into the Black American's resiliency. Some images are uplifting and inspiring while others paint a picture of pain, all are woven into the fabric of American life. This exhibit was generously created by Edda Williams and Diane Dues.
You are welcome to view the display on the second floor at YDL-Whittaker Road during the month of June. The pieces will be on top of the low bookcases near the reference desk.
