Good Trouble: Lessons from the Civil Rights Playbook

October 22 - December 20, 2020

Featuring illustrations from Christopher Noxon's book Good Trouble: Lessons from the Civil Rights Playbook that show how the past can be the best road map in inspiring action and hope. Artwork generously on loan from the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater and the Leon Family Gallery at the Simon Family JCC, and exhibit hosted in collaboration with the Robert Nusbaum Center. The exhibit launches a year-long project by the Nusbaum Center to create an action guide that will complement Noxon’s book. Borrowing from the lessons of the civil rights movement, the guide will offer practical tools for activists in the 21st Century. Hofheimer Library is also displaying a selection of books, ebooks, and media that address civil rights issues and the effectiveness of grassroots movements.

Open only to VWU students, faculty and staff. The VWU campus is currently closed to the public due to COVID-19 restrictions, but outside guests are invited to view the gallery virtually
