Exhibitions

The University Libraries offers exhibitions and special displays throughout our Libraries.


Revolution - Civil Rights at UB, 1960 – 1975

The University Libraries, in collaboration with the University at Buffalo’s Office of Inclusive Excellence and the University Honors College, present “Revolution: Civil Rights at UB, 1960-1975.” This exhibition highlights 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 this momentous era of social transformation, the University at Buffalo hosted many influential civil rights leaders, often at the invitation of UB students committed to raising awareness of important local, national and global issues. This exhibition honors these historic figures and recognizes the significance of their visits.
