"A Stone of Hope: Black Experiences in the Fox Cities," a traveling exhibit from the History Museum at the Castle in Appleton, will come to the Miram B. and James J. Mulva Library on the St. Norbert College campus, Dec. 1--14.

The exhibit will travel to schools, libraries, churches and other venues over the next two years. Its purpose is to share the history of African-American settlement in northeast Wisconsin from the 1700s to the present, including the fight for civil rights and the ongoing struggle for equality.

The exhibit is free and open to the public during general library hours, which are 7 a.m. to 1 a.m. on Mondays through Thursdays, 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Fridays, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturdays and 12 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Sundays.

There will be an opening reception for the exhibit on Dec. 1, from 4 to 6 p.m. in the library's Presentation Room. Remarks will be made by Nicholas Hoffman, chief curator of the History Museum at the Castle, and Bola Delano-Oriaran, associate professor of education at St. Norbert College. The reception is also free and open to the public.
