A new exhibition opening today at Hill Memorial Library showcases the historic trail to racial integration and the progression of civil rights at the University and in Baton Rouge.
The goal of the exhibition is to reveal the various perspectives of integration and civil rights at the University, said Jennifer Abraham Cramer, director of LSU Libraries’ T. Harry Williams Center for Oral History.
The exhibit, “The Relentless Pursuit of ‘Equal’: Integrating LSU,” will remain open until March 29. It will offer firsthand narratives told by contemporaries of the Civil Rights Era, such as A.P. Tureaud, a New Orleans attorney who was a key figure in desegregation, Cramer said.
