Exhibit Opening: “The Brothers: The Forgotten Struggle for Civil Rights in Albany”

The Mid-1960’s was a time of turbulence and triumph that challenged the social consciousness of America. As we consider the 50th year Anniversaries of important milestones of the Civil Rights Movement of that period, including the March on Washington, The Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act, the War on Poverty…and remember “Selma”…the question is asked what was Albany doing?  This exhibit offers a glimpse.

Documentary screening (19 minutes); Light Refreshments

Remarks:

  • Kathy Sheehan, Mayor City of Albany
  • Brian Keough, Chair, M.E. Grenander Department of Special Collections and Archives, University at Albany
  • Members of the Brothers: Earl Thorpe, Purcell McDowell
