American University has a long record of political activism. Students coalesced over a variety of issues such as abortion, apartheid, campus governance, the environment, and the Vietnam War. Student support ranged from organizing events and fundraisers on campus to participating in national protests and marches in DC. A new exhibit on display on the first floor of Bender Library features photographs and an article from AU’s Student Newspaper, The Eagle, documenting the nature and purpose of several of the larger protests from the late 1960s to the early 2000s. The exhibit will be on display through the end of the fall semester.
