Kentucky ACLU's 60th anniversary exhibit kicks off

The "60 Faces of Liberty" exhibit begins today at the Ekstrom Library, and runs through March 31. The exhibit celebrates the 60th anniversary of the Kentucky ACLU and includes portraits, oral histories, narratives and artifacts to tell the story of the local ACLU affiliate.

"60 Faces of Liberty" is part of a series of public events that are scheduled for this semester that focus on civil rights and first amendment issues defended by the ACLU.

The University of Louisville is sponsoring this event through several departments and programs, including the Brandeis School of Law Partnership with the Central High School Law and Government Magnet program. The partnership with the Kentucky ACLU began in 2007, when the program adopted the Marshall-Brennan Civil Liberties curriculum to be taught by law students to law magnet seniors. The ACLU has provided contributions and other support to the law school's partnership since that time.

 

 

Black Freedom, White Allies & Red Scare: Louisville, 1954

The Law Library is proud to be hosting the exhibit, “Black Freedom, White Allies & Red Scare: Louisville, 1954,” thanks to the generosity of the Anne Braden Institute for Social Justice Research. This fascinating and moving chronicle of events leading up to and including Carl and Anne Braden’s sedition trial will be open to everyone through January 23, 2015.

If you did not see the exhibit when it was housed at the Louisville Free Public Library during the fall of 2014, you have another chance! Please stop by the Reading Room during any of the library’s operating hours.  And if you want to know more about the Braden’s story, the NPR show “Here and Now” recently ran a detailed story on the 60th anniversary of the case.
