On Friday, the Newseum opened a new exhibit, “1965: Civil Rights at 50.” In the display are newspapers from the time, including this March 8, 1965 edition of the Dallas Morning News.
That’s civil rights leader John Lewis being beaten by a state trooper, Newseum’s press release reports. The exhibit also includes images from “March,” a graphic novel by Lewis, who is now a Georgia congressman. Here are two more images from the exhibit:
The Newseum also has “Make Some Noise: Students and the Civil Rights Movement.” That exhibit includes a collection of things from Ferguson, Missouri, such as reporters’ notebooks and press passes.
