TITLE-PANEL School-DesegA Time for Change:
Civil Rights in New Jersey

It was the tumultuous ’60s, a decade of upheaval, when New Jersey played an important part in the struggle for African American equality. Its citizens fought for racial justice and against segregation in the South, marched on Washington with Martin Luther King Jr., stood up for voting rights during the 1964 Democratic National Convention in Atlantic City and hosted the first Miss Black America pageant. Using words, images and rare film footage, “A Time for Change” tells the compelling story of an era that redefined a nation.


Black Mail: A Celebration of African American Stamps

The U.S. Post Office and Postal Service have played a special role in recognizing and popularizing the many and varied contributions of African American women and men throughout our history.

The stamps included in this exhibit in poster-size reproductions span the range of American social and political life, honoring leaders in business and industry, in science, medicine and technology, in culture and the arts, in sports, in academics and education, and in government and in human rights.
