The Association for the Study of African American Life and History has dedicated Black History Month 2013 to commemorate two important anniversaries, the sesquicentennial of the Emancipation Proclamation and the fiftieth of the March on Washington. This exhibition celebrates the people who advocated for black emancipation, freedom, justice and equality, and the movements that have sought to achieve these goals.

This single case exhibition was originally on display in the Morris Library Information Room from February 1-February 28, 2013.
