Do Not Go Gentle: Poetry of Protest

Do Not Go Gentle: Poetry of Protest
Otto G. Richter Library | The Lynda and Michael Gordon Exhibition Program
Fall Semester 2012 (opening September 17, 2012)

Throughout history, protests have changed the way people think and the way nations govern.  This exhibition explores some important 20th- and 21st-century protest themes through musical scores, contemporary zines, artists’ books, and poems by celebrated protest writers.  By touching on a range of protest from antiwar to human rights, we invite viewers to contemplate these powerful and lyrical messages of hope, peace, and change.
