In honor of the 50th Anniversary of Integration at FSU, the Florida State University Libraries have combed Special Collections and University Archives to bring you headlines, stories, and images from the era. Within the online exhibit, you'll find photographs, newspaper clippings, yearbook selections and other documents which tell the story of Integration at FSU and the broader Civil Rights movement in Tallahassee. Our goal is to present original material from the time as a tool for research, exploration, and discussion.
