Organization
Description

LSSU’s Kenneth Shouldice Library Art Gallery is host to a traveling exhibit this month that celebrates Black History Month by focusing on the life of a visionary strategist and activist who has been called “the unknown hero” of the civil rights movement. “Life of Bayard Rustin,” on loan from Chester County Historical Society in Pennsylvania, highlights the life of the American civil rights leader and Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient most noted for coordinating the 1963 “March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.” The exhibit contains a timeline, photos and panels on Rustin’s childhood, education, pacifism, and legacy. It also includes notebooks chronicling the controversy surrounding the naming of a high school in his honor and is accompanied by MP3 players and playlists that include excerpts from Rustin’s musical recordings. The public is welcome at an open house for the traveling exhibit at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 12, at the gallery. During Wednesday’s open house, the 2003 film "Brother Outsider: The Life of Bayard Rustin," will be shown twice, at 6 p.m. and 7:20 p.m. in room 203 of the Shouldice Library. There is no admission fee.
