Everyday People:
The Unsung Heroes and Heroines
Who Powered the Civil Rights Movement

Wednesday, August 28, 2013
The Oakland Museum of California
1000 Oak Street, Oakland, Calif.


Cocktail Reception • Silent Auction



Artists have always provided inspiration in times of trial and struggle. Singers, actors, dancers and others have created original works of art inspired by the civil rights movement. Artistic works will be on display and available for purchase.

Would you like to submit
artwork for this exhibition?


Musicians, actors and dancers from the acclaimed
Marcus Shelby Jazz Orchestra, the Lorraine Hansberry Theatre and the Zaccho Dance Theatre will debut an original theatrical event that pays homage to the unsung heroes and heroines who
powered the civil rights movement.

This contribution by everyday people was made through their words and ideas, dedication and hard work, and in some cases by sacrificing their lives. We should never forget that the struggle for equality in the 1960s was a war in many ways as important as the conflict abroad at that time.

About Equal Justice Society. Now in its 13th year, the Equal Justice Society is a national legal organization focused on restoring constitutional safeguards against discrimination. Our goal is to help achieve a society where race is no longer a barrier to opportunity. Specifically, EJS is working to fully restore the constitutional protections of the Fourteenth Amendment and the Equal Protection Clause by replacing the Intent Doctrine with a Disparate Impact standard that addresses contemporary forms of racism. We use a three-pronged approach to accomplish these goals, combining legal advocacy, outreach and coalition building, and education through effective messaging and communication strategies. Learn more about us at http://equaljusticesociety.org. We Moved! Our new address is 1999 Harrison Street, Suite 800, Oakland, CA 94612. 415-288-8700 remains our main number.
