Visit our interactive programming display on the second floor of the Alumni Memorial Union. We are showcasing some of the nation's historic civil rights law cases. Between Monday-Thursday, we will have a short synopsis of each case on pieces of paper and are asking for you to try and identify where on our timeline you think the case belongs.
