East Baton Rouge Parish Library is proud to announce our partnership with Google Arts and Culture! Google Arts and Culture is a platform that allows cultural heritage organizations to bring their art and cultural collections to the masses using their state of the art platform.
In honor of Black History Month, EBRPL has published its first ever online exhibit, “The Baton Rouge Swim-in” on Google Arts and Culture! The exhibit examines the attempted integration of City Park pool in 1963 by African-American activists and how that event along with others contributed to the desegregation of local recreational facilities in East Baton Rouge Parish.
Visit the Google Arts and Culture website to see our exhibit and explore the thousands of collections made available by cultural organizations from around the world.
