To tell their stories, the exhibition includes photographs, personal artifacts, and oral history audio clips. The exhibition will be on view from April 27 through June 21, 2017.
This Exhibition developed from oral histories collected for COPH’s “Women, Politics, and Activism Project,” directed by Dr. Natalie Fousekis. Under the supervision of Dr. Margie Brown-Coronel, students in the Graduate Seminar in Public History installed the exhibition and developed all the programming accompanying the exhibition. The Department of History and the Center for Oral and Public History seek to combine the strengths of history, oral history and public history to build better connections between Cal State Fullerton and the local, national, and global communities.
