Records of Resistance: Documenting Global Activism 1933 to 2021,” the latest exhibition at Princeton University Library, considers how issues of perennial concern including indigenous, gender, and LGBTQIA+ rights, social inequality, antisemitism, and systemic racism manifest in resistance over time and across the globe. Showcased are large, digital images that range from sacred Passover Haggadot that embody Jews’ spiritual resistance during the Holocaust, to dramatic photographs of marchers on Selma’s Edmund Pettus Bridge in 1965, to vibrant posters and pamphlets created more recently by protesters taking to the streets of Santiago, Chile and Lahore, Pakistan. These images all capture continuity and change in practices of protest and activism in diverse geographic and social contexts. The exhibition is open in the Milberg Gallery in Firestone Library from September 7 to December 11, 2022 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the weekends.
