Courage in Action:
Stories of Michigan Women in the Civil Rights Movement

Through February 2015

Discover the stories of Michigan Women's Hall of Fame inductees Grace Lee Boggs, Nellie Cuellar, Waunetta Dominic, Rosa Slade Gragg, Viola Liuzzo, and Rosa Parks-- all of whom worked towards improvements in civil rights. They came from different backgrounds and acted in different ways-- some in their own communities, some on the national level-- and their stories serve as inspiration for the next generation of civil rights leaders.

Not Just a Man's War:
Michigan Women and the Civil War

Through February 2015

In celebration of the Civil War sesquicentennial come discover what the War meant for the women of the state. Life in Michigan changed when men left to fight in the Civil War. In addition to their regular duties, the women who remained at home assumed responsibilities previously held by men while sending supplies to support soldiers far from home. Other Michigan women moved to the frontline, serving in hospitals and -- for some bold women--even on battlefields.

When Lincoln declared "Thank God for Michigan!" upon the arrival of the first regiment from a western state, he could not have anticipated all of the sacrifices and changes the women of Michigan would face.
