During the 1960s and 70s, the University at Buffalo hosted many influential civil rights leaders. To honor these historic figures and recognize the significance of their visits during an era of social transformation, the Office of Inclusive Excellence, UB Libraries, the Honors College, and other UB partners present an exhibition located in Silverman Library on North Campus, an auxiliary display in the Health Sciences Library in Abbott Hall on South Campus, as well as pop-up banners of civil rights leaders displayed around campus. The primary exhibition in Silverman library includes audio recordings of Cesar Chavez, Shirley Chisolm, Angela Davis, and Martin Luther King, and a timeline of civil rights events that occurred both locally and nationally.
