Charting Our Path: Celebrating 50 Years of Black Studies Traveling Exhibition
Every day until December 2
Love Library North & Link

This 4-panel traveling exhibit shares historical snapshots of one of the nation’s oldest black studies departments at the University of Nebraska at Omaha – highlighting debates over curriculum, attempts to demote the department to curriculum and mutual engagement between campus and community.

Banners share archival materials such as newspaper clippings, department documents, and photos, chronicling events from the campus sit-in of 1969 to the “Omaha 54” celebration of student activists 52 years later.

The history of the Department of Black Studies has been characterized by a constant struggle for survival, but also by the enduring commitment and support of Omaha’s black community. Learn about the department’s civil rights origins, battles for legitimacy in the eyes of the university, the role of the Omaha Chapter of the NAACP in the department’s survival, and much more.

Free visit of the exhibition.
