Student Help Project Timeline
Many of our collections were donated by activists who participated in the Student Help Project in Jamaica, Queens, and Prince Edward County, Virginia, in 1963. This timeline visually displays date-stamped materials and is the result of our "50 Years Ago Today" social media project, launched on May 1st, 2013. The project Tweeted items daily to provide greater access to materials while also highlighting the daily work of civil rights activists at Queens College. The items displayed are just highlights; the collections hold much more on the Student Help Project and other student activism.
