In the spring of 1965, three individuals from Pullman traveled to Selma, Alabama, to participate in a pivotal Civil Rights March. They were James H, Barker, a staff photographer, David L. Warren, ASWSU President, and Robert E. Cole, associate professor of Economics. Led by Dr. Martin Luther King, the Selma March challenged voting discrimination and led to the passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act.

Barker’s photographs of this pivotal protest will be on display in the Museum of Anthropology until March 20.

The Museum of Anthropology at Washington State University rehabilitates and curates archaeological and ethnographic collections. The Museum is an official repository for archaeological collections generated by the work of Federal, State, and County agencies in Eastern Washington. The Museum also houses a collection of objects representative of the culture of Native American tribes in the Inland Northwest since contact with Europeans.

These collections are available for examination by qualified individuals conducting research into the lifeways of American Indian people.

We work closely with American Indian groups to fulfill the provisions of the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act of 1990.

Hours

The Museum is open by appointment during the summer session. Contact us by phone or email for more information.
