Tuesday, September 17 - Friday, July 25 All Day - Oviatt Library, Tseng Gallery
Collective social action movements, whether spontaneous expressions of dissent or high-reaching attempts to change society, have been a part of American life since the nation's earliest days. Protest actions, in the form of boycotts, demonstrations, riots, property destruction, occupations, labor strikes, local activism, or works of art, have spanned the political spectrum, defined generations, and shaped our uniquely American identity.
We invite you to view items from the Oviatt Library's Special Collections and Archives that document dozens of distinct and significant social action movements over the course of the 20th century
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm - Oviatt Library, Tseng Gallery
Please join us for a reception celebrating the opening of this year's exhibition, In Protest: the Shifting Paradigms of Collective Social Action.
