Residence halls sponsor exhibit on oppression

Nov. 1, 2005

KALAMAZOO--Draper-Siedschlag residence halls at Western Michigan University are sponsoring a free two-day exhibition on oppressed people and catastrophes shaping today's world events.

The exhibit, titled "Tunnel of Oppression," is in the basement of Draper Hall and is open 7 to 10 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, Nov. 8-9. It is open to the public, but is not recommended for people under age 18, because of the graphic content of some exhibits.

Exhibits are set up in a series of rooms and deal with oppression of women, gays and other minorities. Other exhibits deal with the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on New York and Washington and 2005's Hurricane Katrina.

The event is sponsored by Draper-Siedschlag Resident Advisers and Hall Council. For more information, contact Sarah Hurd at sarah.e.hurd@wmich.edu or (269) 387-6801.
