Digital Display: Good Trouble: MLK Day 21

Complimentary Display for 2nd Floor Display at Vogel Library

Young John Lewis speaking at a meeting


The journey toward social justice can be lonely and dangerous.  Equity will not just happen. We must be willing to get into the arena, and there will always be critique and dismissal. The Civil Rights movement is not just a historic movement. It continues today in the work of today’s Black activists and leaders who continue to put their reputations, bodies, and lives on the line for freedom. Join them by heeding John Lewis’ words, “Ordinary people with extraordinary vision can redeem the soul of America by getting in what I call good trouble, necessary trouble.”


You can also view physical resources on the 2nd Floor display table at Vogel Library.
