Rise Up: Stonewall and the LGBTQ Rights Movement

Tuesday, November 16, 2021



Amanda Friedeman, Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center
Newberry Teachers' Consortium

The June 1969 police raid on the Stonewall Inn served as a flashpoint for the modern gay rights movement in the United States. Explore the Stonewall riots and subsequent activism through artifacts, first-hand accounts, and Illinois Holocaust Museum’s new special exhibition, Rise Up: Stonewall and the LBGTQ Rights Movement, and develop strategies to use this important history to meet Illinois’ Teaching LBGTQ History mandate.
