Steal Away Home

The “’Steal Away Home’: Narratives of Enslavement and Freedom” exhibition showcases rare books and archival music items relating to enslavement and freedom—from the Department of Archives & Special Collections’ rare book and blues collections. It is open from 9am-4pm, Monday-Friday (except for University holidays) in the department’s Faulkner Room. It is suggested that visitors call in advance if they are coming from long distances, as that room is sometimes temporarily closed for class instruction (662.915.7408).
