Exhibit Explores Influence of Black Power Movement

The lasting influence of the Black Power Movement and how it shapes and affects our lives today is showcased in Legacy: Understanding Black Power 40 Years Later, an exhibition including photographs, books and memorabilia from the Black Power era at the Johns Hopkins University's Milton S. Eisenhower Library, opening on Friday, Feb. 11.

Presented by the Black Faculty and Staff Association, the exhibit is part of the celebration of Black History Month 2005 on the university's Homewood campus.

Among the individuals highlighted in the exhibit are Charles Simmons, president of Sojourner-Douglass College, the only private predominantly black institution of higher learning in Maryland; and Paul Coates, co-founder of the Black Classic Press, which is devoted to publishing obscure but significant works by and about people of African descent. The exhibit runs through June 15, 2005, and may be viewed on the Main Level of the Eisenhower Library, Monday through Thursday, 8 am to midnight; Friday and Saturday, 8 am to 10 pm; and Sunday, 10 am to midnight. For excerpts from the exhibit, go to www.jhu.edu/~bfsa/bpexhibit.

The Black Faculty and Staff Association was founded in 1995, and is dedicated to promoting and enhancing identity, sense of community, professional welfare and development among black faculty, staff and students of the university.
