On August 28, 1963 thousands were drawn to the National Mall to be part of what would become a historic event: the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. On a national level, the march spurred the passing of important civil rights legislation. Special Collections newest exhibition reviews how, 50 years later, the fight for civil rights has impacted local Tucson communities. A companion exhibition focusing on national civil rights issues is also on display in the UA Main Library from Jan. 15 - Aug. 30, 2013.

Highlights of the exhibit include national civil rights legislative documents from the Morris K. and Stewart L. Udall Collections, documents from the Tucson Council for Civic Unity archive detailing the council's effort to end discrimination and segregation in Tucson and Arizona, and photographs and papers from civil rights groups and individuals representing the African American, Native American, Asian American, LGBTQ, and Mexican American communities of Tucson. An audio kiosk playing songs from the civil rights era is also part of the exhibition.

Special Collections is open Monday-Friday. Please view the gallery hours to plan your visit.

"A masterpiece. The best drama, the best comedy and the best romance of the year, all rolled into one." ~ Time Out New York
