Archivists ‘Hop into History’ Sept. 15

On Thursday, Sept. 15, 2016, from 5 to 7 p.m., archivists from UNCG Jackson Library will be at Gibb’s Hundred Brewing Company in Downtown Greensboro to launch the new monthly “Hop into History” series with an exhibition on the local civil rights landscape in the 1950s and 1960s.

Attendees will see a typewriter used by one of the first African American students to enroll at UNCG (Fall 1956), a scrapbook created by Curly Harris (manager of Woolworth during the 1960 sit ins), a flyer distributed by students leading a boycott of segregated businesses on Tate Street in 1963, materials from the Black Power Forum held at UNCG in November 1967, and more.
