|Social Action at Manhattanville|
Welcome to the "Social Action at Manhattanville" virtual archival exhibition.
Our first digital collection bears witness to the tradition of social action that remains an integral part of Manhattanville today.
In 1933, decades before the Civil Rights Movement transformed the nation, the Manhattanville community took a decisive stand in the fight against racism and discrimination. Over the next thirty years Manhattanville consistently created publications, hosted events, participated in demonstrations, and solidified its place as a beacon to other socially aware colleges.
This virtual exhibition bears witness to the individuals who worked for change, and salutes the tradition of social action that remains an integral part of Manhattanville today.

The collection on this site acts as an introduction to a larger digitization project funded, in part by a grant from the Metropolitan Library Council. The entire 150 item collection can be seen at http://bit.ly/mvillesocialaction.
