Summer Exhibit: Contesting Race and Citizenship in the Gilded Age

Monday, May 1st, 2017

Featuring political cartoons by Thomas Nast and other artists, Bailey/Howe Library’s summer exhibit examines the fierce debates over the meaning of the Fourteenth Amendment and the development of racial stereotypes in the twenty-five years after the U. S. Civil War. “Contesting Race and Citizenship in the Gilded Age” was created by first-year students in Professor Nicole Phelps’s class, The Gilded Age.
