The DePaul Museum of Art and DePaul University Library have partnered to create research guides to accompany DPAM exhibitions. The "Demanding Change, Bearing Witness" exhibition addresses photography's role in documenting activist movements including anti war activism, early labor movements, civil rights, land rights, and gay rights activism and is the culmination of a year-long initiative of the College of Liberal Arts and the DePaul Art Museum. Students enrolled in HAA 291: Museum Profession & Practice: Chicago Case Study - Wilson Garling Photography Collection and HAA 397: Managing Museum Collections: Exhibitions Practice taught by Cheryl Bachand and ENG 272: Envisioning Civil Rights in the U.S taught by Bill Johnson González worked to co-develop an online exhibition based on the Wilson Garling Collection's archive of social justice photography. This guide serves as a starting point for conducting research about the artists, photographs, and context of items in the exhibition. 

Resources on this guide have been selected by students enrolled in HAA 291, HAA 397 and ENG 272 with contributions by professor Cheryl Bachand and librarians, Alexis Burson, Jill King, and Chris Parker. Special thanks to Margo Lipscomb and professor Bill Johnson Gonzalez for their research on Langston Hughes' poem "Let America be America Again" and to Leila Nessar and Spender Bolding for their research on photography and activism.
