CHICAGO (AP) - Roosevelt University will present a photo exhibit this fall featuring images of protest movements in Chicago from the 1940s to the 1970s.

The show will run from Sept. 17 to Dec. 19 at the university’s Gage Gallery.

The exhibit features the work of Art Shay, a world-renowned photographer who opened his archive in Deerfield, Illinois to Roosevelt historian Erik Gellman.

Gellman says many of the never-before-seen images will change what viewers know about Chicago protests.

Featured among the photographs will be early Cold War protests, Chicago’s Freedom Movement marches, the 1968 Vietnam War demonstrations, photographs of the late Mayor Richard J. Daley and Chicago police, and images from the Black Power Movement.

Shay will participate in a discussion at an opening-night reception.
