Exhibit - "Protesting for Equal Rights: 50th Anniversary - Reminder Day"

On July 4, 1965, at Independence Hall, 40 men and women carried signs with radical messages like "HOMOSEXUAL CITIZENS DEMAND THEIR CIVIL RIGHTS." Risking harassment, career loss and arrest, these protestors openly marched for equality. Find out more about their struggle to overcome intolerance and gain equal rights for the LGBT community in this special temporary exhibit in the home of the Liberty Bell.
