We have them on reserve at the EL & TC. Come by and check one out or feel free to request via your MU Libraries account. No time to read before Thursday? Don’t worry!

In support of the MLK Teach-In this month, University Libraries has created an exhibit on Confederate Rock. Confederate Rock was a monument erected by the John S. Marmaduke Chapter, United Daughters of the Confederacy in 1935. The monument originally stood in the area we know today as Speakers Circle. In 1974, Mizzou activists led by the Legion of Black Collegians succeeded in having the monument removed from the MU campus. The monument has had many homes in Boone County, eventually being placed at the Centralia Battlefield Historical Site in 2015. This exhibit contains several newspaper articles and photographs that highlight the history of the monument.
Explore this topic with us at Ellis Library. The theme of this year’s MLK Teach-In is “Where Do We Go From Here?” The exhibit will be on display through Friday, March 29th. Interact with us at libraryguides.missouri.edu/mlk
