Through Whose Eyes: A Student Exhibit

posted in: Archives, Library Displays | 0
Opening night of the exhibit.

Over the winter term, Ms. Pine’s Civil Rights class worked weekly in the archives on their assignment, “Curating an Exhibit: The 1960’s and Civil Rights”. The students were asked to research and reflect on the 1960’s, ultimately choosing to answer the question, “How did the 1960’s shape the SPS community?”  They split into four groups – Community Outreach, Black Student Publications, Language & Counterculture, and Coeducation – and chose primary sources from the archives that illustrated their thesis:

“In Ms. Pine’s course, Civil Rights, the ’60’s and St. Paul’s School, [we] utilized the archives in order to understand the ways St. Paul’s reflected the civil unrest of the era; through this exhibit, the class hopes to provide a snapshot of the St. Paul’s experience in parallel to the rapidly changing culture of the long ’60’s.”

Their exhibit, Through Whose Eyes? The Evolution of Faces at SPS, can be seen on the third floor of Ohrstrom Library through the end of winter term. Come take a look and then congratulate these 5th and 6th Formers on a job well done: Sally Brunelle ’24, Cole Edwards ’24, Kiki Hillery ’24, Temi Johnson ’24, Eden Knight ’24, Char Machiels ’25, Miru Nam ’24, Ernest Obiorah ’24, Mayu Ogawa ’24, Ava Price ’24, Lou Szal ’24, Mikey Williams ’25, and Lidia Zur Muhlen ’24.
