Start Something: Activism and the Atlanta Student Movement

Date:
Through 5/22/2017

“Start Something: Activism and the Atlanta Student Movement” documents the history and legacy of the Atlanta Student Movement of the 1960s. During the movement, students from Atlanta University, Clark College (now Clark Atlanta University), the Interdenominational Theological Center, Morehouse College and Spelman College organized protests to end legalized segregation practices in Atlanta. The exhibit also ties the student-led, civil rights protests of the 1960s with today’s youth-led protests, such as #AUCShutItDown, #ItsBiggerThanYou and the Black Lives Matter movement. Free and open to the public!
