Social Justice at Stanford: Selections from the University Archives

Social Justice at Stanford, an exhibit showing in the Bender Room of Green Library beginning September 30, explores the theme of social justice as revealed through a selection of materials from the Stanford University Archives documenting 20th century civil rights and social protest movements.

As suffragists and as hunger strikers, through Freedom Summer and the South African Divestment Movement, to the passage of Title IX and the Americans with Disabilities Act, Stanford students have helped lead the charge against injustice and inequality on the Stanford campus and beyond.

Social Justice at Stanford is a companion exhibit to Movements for Change: the Bob Fitch Photography Archive at Stanford (an exhibit on view in the Peterson Gallery and Munger Rotunda from September 14, 2014 - February 21, 2015), and tells moving stories along the path to achieving social justice, relying on original collection materials from the Stanford University Archives.
