All are welcome to attend the opening of the Community Coalition for Social Justice's exhibit "Celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964" on Tuesday, July 2nd, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. on the second floor of the Morgantown Public Library at 373 Spruce Street. There will be a brief program at 6:30 p.m. On July 2, 1964, President Lyndon Johnson signed this bill which prohibits discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, and national origin.

Eve Faulkes designed the exhibit, including a graphic novel featuring the stories of civil rights activists in Morgantown and Monongalia County as well as those around the state. Local residents include Charlene Marshall, the first African American woman mayor in the state; social justice activist Al Anderson; and West Virginia native Duane Nichols, who integrated restaurants in Newark, Delaware.

The exhibit will be available on the second floor of the library throughout the month of July during normal business hours for the library (Monday-Thursday: 9:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m. and Friday-Saturday: 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.).

The exhibit will then "travel" to Multifest in Charleston from August 1st through 4th and to the Charleston YWCA. There will be related activities at the Morgantown Farmers Market Pavilion on Spruce Street on Saturday, July 13th.

The City of Morgantown is providing financial support for the exhibit. The First Presbyterian Church of Morgantown, Morgantown/Kingwood Branch of the NAACP, and Morgantown Human Rights Commission are also supporting the exhibit.

There will be related activities sponsored by the First Presbyterian Church at the Morgantown Farmers Market on Saturday, July 13th, from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.
