home Ellis Library, Events and Exhibits MLK Teach-In Exhibit at Ellis Library

MLK Teach-In Exhibit at Ellis Library

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

Junior Duck Stamp Program Display in Ellis Library

The Federal Junior Duck Stamp Conservation and Design Program is a dynamic art- and science-based curriculum that teaches wetland and waterfowl conservation to students in kindergarten through high school.
The Junior Duck Stamp Art Contest is the culmination of the Junior Duck Stamp educational program. After studying waterfowl anatomy and habitat, students
express their newfound knowledge by drawing or painting a picture of an eligible North American waterfowl species.
Students from across the United States submit their artwork to their state, territory or district art competition.
The “Best of Show” from each competition is submitted to the National Junior Duck Stamp Art Contest, where judges select one image to become the next Junior Duck Stamp.
In 20018, more than 20,000 youth participated in state and territory Junior Duck Stamp art contests. On display in the Ellis Library colonnade during the month of January are winners of the Missouri Junior Duck Stamp Contest.
