View And Still I Rise!, a tribute to an outstanding array of celebrated artists and gifted athletes who broke racially restrictive barriers with relentless determination.
Witness A Celebration of Progress, a mural depicting the evolution of Greensboro from the days of segregation to a period of time when a sense of access, symbolized by drinking fountains, is no longer based on race. The mural, painted by participating youth in the Murals, Minds, & Communities of the African American Atelier, was conceived and directed by Darlene J. Glenn-McClinton.

Relive Dr. King and the March on Washington. We walk side by side with the 250,000 who assembled in the nation’s capital on August 28, 1963, as they rallied for needed social changes: the right to vote, equality of opportunity in employment, desegregated schools, fair housing, and access to public accommodations without regard to race. “The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom”—at that time the largest demonstration ever on the mall—attracted black and white, young and old, and those from varied religious backgrounds. It was here that Dr. King proclaimed “I have a dream” for a transformed America. The exhibition was organized by the staff of the International Civil Rights Center & Museum.

The Art of Activism: Civil Rights History on US Stamps
Through the work of such prominent African American visual artists as Jacob Lawrence and Romare Bearden, we rediscover milestones in Civil Rights history. The themes reproduced on US postage stamps range from the integration of the armed services following World War II, to the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
