Wayne State University’s Walter P. Reuther Library and WSU University Libraries are making available an online exhibit documenting the 1968 sanitation workers strike in Memphis, Tenn.

The online experience captures the landmark struggle that influenced the American labor and civil rights movements.

The exhibit contains historic documents and photographs of the events in Memphis, along with video clips from a symposium held at WSU in 2003 that commemorated the 35th anniversary of the strike
