The Wilmington 1968 Sourcebook is more than just a catalog for the Wilmington 1968 trio of exhibitions. The Sourcebook, compiled by Simone Austin and featuring essays from Ms. Austin as well as Dr. Jordan Howell and artist Hank Willis Thomas, is a collection of documents, photos and writing that shed light on Wilmington’s history during the Civil Rights movement. This book details the events that led to the National Guard occupation of Wilmington, Delaware and explores the occupation and its aftermath.
