Take a Stand Against Racism: Civil Rights Pioneers from 1828 to Present

Currently on display in Beatley Library, "Take a Stand Against Racism:  Civil Rights Pioneers from 1828 to Present" highlights some of the influential people who sought to improve equality for all.    Both well- and lesser-known pioneers are showcased, including Sojourner Truth, Ida B. Wells, John Brown, Earl Warren, Ella Baker, Maria Elena Lucas and more.

And while you're in the Library, raise your voice in support of this cause by signing the Stand Against Racism pledge which is located by the book display.  The Pledge was created by the YWCA and endorsed by Simmons College.
