The Ohio State University Libraries celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 in the Thompson Library Gallery with Remembering the Act: Archival Reflections on Civil Rights in 1964 from September 15, 2014-January 4, 2015. As viewed through the lens of library Special Collections, this exhibit explores the historical and cultural ramifications of the landmark federal bill that prohibited discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. In particular, it offers little-known insights about the Ohio politician who was instrumental in passing the legislation through Congress. It also provides a frank appraisal of the prevailing racial inequalities faced by minority residents of Columbus and African-American students at The Ohio State University in the decades prior to the billŐs enactment.
