The exhibit provides a glimpse into the history of civil rights in South Bend, including the 28 years it took African Americans to gain full access to the largest public swimming pool in the state, the Engman Public Natatorium.

"This building represents a huge part of that struggle to make sure that we are all united and that we are all one country," says George Garner with IUSB Civil Rights Heritage Center.

The exhibit will be open 10am-2pm Tuesday through Saturday.
