Categories: University Libraries
This exhibit at W. S. Hoole Special Collections Library focuses on the Reconstruction period in Alabama, particularly the repercussions of slave emancipation and Confederate defeat. The struggle of freed people of color to establish new lives and advocate for social justice is inextricably linked with the rancor of disenfranchised Southern whites and their resistance to the new status quo.
The exhibit offers a timeline of local and national events and provides other helpful political and social context. It also showcases archival sources from UA Libraries Special Collections, illustrating important historical events and realities of the era. Items range from handwritten documents such as letters, diary entries, and receipts to printed pieces like as newspaper articles, reports, and ephemera.
The exhibit is open during the library’s regular hours of operation: Monday/Wednesday/Friday 9:00 a.m.-4:45 p.m. and Tuesday/Thursday 9:00 a.m.-7:45 p.m. (when classes are in session).
It runs through April 15, 2020.
