The Ohio State University Libraries is commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act with a new exhibit, Remembering the Act: Archival Reflections on Civil Rights. The exhibit explores the historical and cultural ramifications of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 with particular insight on William McCulloch, the Ohio politician who was instrumental in passing the legislation through Congress.
President Lyndon B. Johnson presents Congressman William McCulloch with one of the pens used to sign the Civil Rights Act of 1964 into law.
The exhibit is on display in the Thompson Library Gallery until January 4, 2015.
