Art exhibit explores civil rights movement—then and now

William Mitchell College of Law is proud to present a new art exhibit, “Building Alliances, Fighting for Equality, and STANDing for Justice: Then and Now.”

The exhibit is open to the public during regular campus hours and will be on display in the First Floor Art Gallery starting Monday, Jan. 21. It will feature iconic images from the Civil Rights Movement as well as a recreation of the Woolworth’s lunch counter in Greensboro, N.C., where four college students started a sit-in movement to protest the company’s discriminatory policies.

The artwork is being displayed as part of Mitchell’s annual MLK Week of Service, during which students, faculty, alumni, and staff honor Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy by volunteering in the community.

Mitchell’s annual week of service is sponsored by The Office of Multicultural Affairs, Students Together Advancing the Need for Diversity and Dialogue (STAND), and the Minnesota Justice Foundation (MJF).
