[History Room Live] The LGBTQ+ Civil Rights Movement in Maine: The Importance of Primary Sources for Preserving our History
Friday June 24, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
From the 1970s-2010s the LGBTQ+ community fought for their civil rights. T-shirts, buttons, posters, photographs, documents, and many other artifacts document how the community built itself, learned to organize, and promoted legislation that would end discrimination in education, housing, and employment.
Susie Bock, Director of the Sampson Center at the University of Southern Maine, will tell that story through USM’s LGBTQ+ Collection, the largest, most comprehensive library of primary materials regarding the queer communities in Maine.
This presentation will take place in the Community Room and live on Zoom. Registration is required for Zoom attendees only.
