New Display in the Abbotsford Library highlights Black History Month

The Abbotsford campus library is displaying library resources highlighting the American Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s.  Inspiration for this display came from the release of the motion picture, Selma, which chronicles the Selma to Montgomery voting rights marches of 1965.

Check out our Libguide for American history where you can access many different kinds of library resources from our catalogue, research databases and Internet sites of primary sources.

Click here to watch one of the Universal Newsreels from March 15, 1965 documenting the march from Selma.  This video is from the American History in Video database.
