Give Earth a Chance: Michigan in the World Online Exhibit Launch

website screen capture website screen capture
In March 1970, students at the University of Michigan organized a four-day teach-in, the precursor of the national Earth Day demonstration that April. The online exhibit “Give Earth a Chance” explores these pivotal events, including video interviews with key organizers, and reproduces more than four hundred archival documents and images from the Bentley Historical Library and Labadie Collection. The exhibit also chronicles the origins of the environmental movement in Michigan, the establishment of the Ecology Center in Ann Arbor, and other key developments in environmental activism and policymaking in the 1960s and 1970s.

Join students from Professor Matthew Lassiter’s fall 2017 History 399 course as they launch “Give Earth a Chance,” the latest installment of Michigan in the World, a public history collaboration between the Department of History and the Eisenberg Institute for Historical Studies.
