In 1969, African American students took over Hopkins Hall to protest the treatment of people of color at Williams. This exhibit displays documents and images of the protest to honor this historical event and its participants. We invite you to come and ask how we can learn from this historical event. In what ways does the takeover continue to shape the College and how can we assess its impact? How can people come together to make meaningful change at the College? How can discontent catalyze action and how can action that be made productive in a world of different perspectives and competing interests?
1-5 pm, Hopins 400, Rogers Room
