Exhibit: ‘Civil Rights in Monroe County’ at the Monroe County History Center

10:00 am to 04:00 pm
Monroe County History Center (202 E. 6th St.)
http://monroehistory.org/

This exhibit at the Monroe County History Center focuses on the Civil Rights Movement and Monroe County’s role in it.

The Civil Rights movements, from the early 1900s to the late 1980s, are an important part of Monroe County history. Indiana University served as a stage for students to make change and voice their rights as African Americans, women and young adults making sense of the world around them. The exhibit follows individuals who had a direct impact in making change in the community and on campus, and the major demonstrations happening at the time.

History Center is open Tuesday – Saturday, 10 am – 4 pm. Exhibit runs until April 27.

Cost: $2 for adults, $1 for children 6 - 18, free for children 5 and under.
