The SE Campus Carrier Library is hosting a grant-funded exhibit called Changing America: The Emancipation Proclamation, 1863 and the March on Washington, 1963 now-Feb. 19.

The Carrier Library is one of 50 venues in the country this exhibit will visit.

The exhibit explores the relationship between the Emancipation Proclamation and the March on Washington 100 years later while also shedding light on Latino civil rights and international influences on civil rights in the U.S.

This exhibit will feature speakers from SE and the University of Texas at Dallas and the University of Delaware.

Ranging from philosophy and civil rights to how African-American beauticians working during the Jim Crow era played a role in social change, the events are free and open to the public.

Changing America also includes two film discussions and an African-American read-in.

For more information, contact the Carrier Library at 817-515-3081.
