1965: Civil Rights at 50 at the Newseum

December 25, 2015 - January 3, 2016

January marks the end of an astounding exhibit exploring the year 1965 and its many iconic civil rights moments, which all left a permanent mark on this nation. The media-focused Newseum uses newspaper clippings and various other social artifacts to explore the relationship between the news and the movement of the 1960’s. The main event looked at here is Bloody Sunday—the attack on peaceful protesters in Selma, Alabama on March 7, 1965—which served as a catalyst for equal rights protests nationwide.
