Take me to the archived exhibition.

The exhibit features a version of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Letter from Birmingham Jail is a limited edition that features eight serigraph prints created by artist Faith Ringgold. The inspirational text of King’s letter is interspersed with Ringgold’s unique and colorful illustrations. Ringgold’s serigraphs depict examples of key issues that prompted the necessity of the Civil Rights movement and highlight significant events of the Civil Rights movement, commented on by King in the letter.

This single case exhibition was originally on display in the Morris Library Information Room in January 2011.
