“Icons of The Civil Rights Movement Exhibition”
Yale Divinity School presents the work of artist Pamela Chatterton-Purdy in an exhibition of painted icons featuring prominent leaders of the civil rights movement. The work was inspired by a “Civil Rights Sojourn” tour of the southern United States that ended with a visit to The Lorraine Motel where Dr. King was murdered. The icons reference religious icons, elevating Civil Rights leaders to saintly significance.

“Jonathan Edwards Center Exhibition”
The Jonathan Edwards Center has developed a global network of scholars who collaborate on research of the writings of the most influential early American theologians. The JE Center will present a demonstration of the project and a display of early editions of books by Edwards.

“Medical Missions Around the World”
This exhibit includes manuscript and published materials from the Divinity Library’s Day Missions Collection that document the impact of Western missionaries on the spread of Western medical treatment and training around the world.
