 On view Rush Rhees Library:  "Beyond Rochester's '64 Riots: 50 Years Seeking to Make One City Out of Two."
“Race Riots Rock Rochester: Curfew Imposed” This Times of India headline on July 26, 1964 typifies hundreds throughout the world that announced startling news from a city known largely for its close-to-idyllic quality of life. The news stories reported that on a hot July evening, a small street dance party suddenly transformed into an angry mob scene of several thousand citizens countered by all available Rochester law enforcement.

At the end of the third day, when uneasy quiet was restored, the devastating results of the riots included: four people killed; heavy looting and property damage totaling more than one million dollars, with numerous commercial properties damaged beyond repair; and more than 1,000, both African Americans and whites, arrested. Rochester’s riots were classified as “most severe” and preceded many others through out the United States during the Sixties summers.

With the approaching fiftieth anniversary of Rochester’s riots, this exhibit acknowledges that it is good to remember and to continue learning from Rochester’s ’64 riots. Beyond Rochester’s ’64 Riots: 50 Years Seeking to Make One City Out of Two showcases a balance of highlights from the past, with the present-day, in search of a fresh perspective on ways to move our community forward.


The exhibit will be on view through Oct. 5. Free and open to the public.

Human Library http://www.rochester.edu/diversity/eventscalendar?event&id=923190 http://www.rochester.edu/diversity/eventscalendar?event&id=923190 Rush Rhees Library Welles-Brown Room
Friday, October 17, 2014
2:00 PM

A Human Library connects community members, or "readers," with individuals who volunteer as "books" to share their life experiences and unique interests. Readers can "check out" books for 30 minutes to engage in one-on-one or small group discussions. Human Libraries promote tolerance, celebrate differences, and encourage understanding of people who come from varied cultural or lifestyle backgrounds.

The first Human Library was held in Denmark in 2000 as part of an anti-violence movement. Since then, hundreds of Human Libraries have been organized throughout the world. This is the fourth Human Library hosted by the River Campus Libraries.

How to Participate: Be a Reader

The catalogue of human books for the October 17th event will become available soon. Readers can reserve books in advance. Walk-in readers are also welcome.

The event is free and open to the University community and the public.

How to Participate: Be a Human Book

It is important to remember that the goal of the Human Library is to break down stereotypes and promote acceptance. For this reason, human books are generally individuals who have experienced some form of discrimination. Human books come from every walk of life.

If you are interested in becoming a human book, please contact Mari Tsuchiya at 275-5506 or mtsuchiya@library.rochester.edu.

Disability Studies Cluster Symposium http://www.rochester.edu/diversity/eventscalendar?event&id=925604 http://www.rochester.edu/diversity/eventscalendar?event&id=925604 School of Nursing
Friday, November 14, 2014
8:00 AM

 The University of Rochester will hold its first-ever Disability Studies Cluster Symposium, titled "Complicating Normalcy: Disability, Technology, and Society in the Twenty-First Century." The symposium is being organized around the documentary FIXED: The Science/Fiction of Human Enhancement. This film explores the meaning of “disability” and “normalcy” in contemporary times through the examination of technological and pharmacological advances designed to “fix or enhance the human body” and the bioethical implications and social tensions that arise from these scientific advances. Some of these bioethical implications and social tensions include the rise in prenatal screening, euthanasia / “right to die” legislation, ongoing stigma and the continued marginalization of children and adults, especially those labeled with intellectual disability, including their segregation in schools, nursing homes and institutions, and the workplace. The Symposium will feature posters, sessions, workshops, and networking opportunities.

Check back for more information or visit www.warner.rochester.edu/. Questions about the symposium may be sent to Julia White at jwhite@warner.rochester.edu.
