History of Inequity reading list

October 24, 2017

The Dayton Memorial Library celebrates the diversity represented in our Regis community and seeks to create an inclusive environment where everyone feels welcome. In October the library observes Hispanic Heritage Month, LGBTQ History Month, and Disability Awareness Month. We take the opportunity during this month to announce the launching of our reading list on the History of Inequity. This reading list has been curated by the librarians at Dayton Memorial Library as a selection of materials addressing issues relating to diversity, inclusion, inequity, and oppression from across disciplines and decades. Most of these resources are written from a scholarly/academic perspective, and many of these items are intersectional in nature and will fall within more than one category listed here.

Disability Rights Movement exhibit

October 24, 2017

On display through October 31st, the Disability Rights Movement exhibit contains photos and materials starting with the first protests for accessibility and spanning to the present day. The Atlantis Community/ADAPT, two seminal advocacy groups for people with disabilities, requested that their archives not be included in the exhibit – as initially planned – after learning about the unequal accessibility of the location including the front steps and lack of front door wheelchair accessibility to the Dayton Memorial Library.

The Popular Vote…Loses

October 10, 2017

“The Popular Vote…Loses” is a new exhibit on the end shelves of the Notarianni Political Collection, 4th floor, Dayton Memorial Library.

Five presidential candidates have won the popular vote of the people, and yet lost the election: Andrew Jackson, 1824; Samuel Tilden, 1876; Grover Cleveland, 1888; Al Gore, 2000; and Hillary Clinton, 2016. They lost the election because they got fewer votes in the Electoral College. This exhibit displays some of the campaign items of the losers, as well as those of their victorious opponents.
