Rise Up: Stonewall and The LGBTQ Rights Movement @ The Newseum | Washington | District of Columbia | United States

“Rise Up: Stonewall and the LGBTQ Rights Movement,” an exhibit that will explore the modern gay rights movement in the United States, will mark the 50th anniversary of a June 1969 police raid of the Stonewall Inn in New York’s Greenwich Village. The protests following the raid are considered to be the catalyst that inspired the modern gay liberation movement and the ongoing fight for LGBTQ civil rights. The mixed-media exhibit, which will travel nationally after its run at the Newseum, includes educational resources for students and teachers.
