Civil Rights at UB

A video highlighting a pivotal era in the history of the United States and the University, during which the struggle for social justice served as the driving force of a movement committed to freedom and equality.

During the '60s and '70s, UB hosted many influential civil rights leaders. These historic figures—such as Cesar Chavez, Shirley Chisolm, Angela Davis and Martin Luther King Jr.—are honored in the exhibit “Revolution: Civil Rights at UB, 1960-1975.” The exhibition highlights a pivotal era in United States history and our university, during which the struggle for social justice served as the driving force of a movement committed to freedom and equality.
