Civil Rights Week

The 2014 Civil Rights Week is underway at Hope. Events sponsored by the Office of Multicultural Education will be happening throughout the week. On Tuesday, January 21 at 7pm in Dimnent Memorial Chapel, Dr. Gwendolyn E. Boyd, president-elect of Alabama State University, will be giving a keynote speech entitled “The Heart of an Activist: Grow Local, Think Global.” Learn more about speaker Dr. Gwendolyn E. Boyd in “Contemporary Black Biography, Volume 49.” Admission to all activities is free.

The library has many resources that you can use to learn about civil rights. If you’re looking for scholarly articles, start with the database America: History and Life. Pictures can often be an impactful reminder of our historic struggle for civil rights. ARTstor has a host of images to help show us that history. As always, a quick search in the catalog yields hundreds of results for you to browse in print or online.

If you’re interested in learning more, contact a librarian and we’ll get you the resource you’re looking for.
