Crossing the Border


Migration, the movement of people from one region to another, is the result of numerous social and economic factors. This exhibit highlights important political and economic events in Arizona’s history that created a hotbed for anti-immigrant rhetoric and policies. We hope this exhibit will lead to further discussion about immigration reform.

LGBT History in Arizona


In 1969, the Stonewall Riots in New York City gave birth to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Civil Rights Movement. In the decades to follow LGBT communities and activists, from across the country, organized and protested in order to overcome homophobia and discrimination. This exhibit, a collaboration between Phoenix Pride, Hip Historian, and ASU Libraries, highlights 45 years of local LGBT history.

Our Stories


Our Stories explores the migration/immigration stories of students in HST 325. Come explore student-conducted family research history, listen to oral history interviews conducted with family members, and read about how students used immigration history scholarship and arguments to connect their migration/immigration stories to the broader history of the United States.

Students also created a documentary incorporating their stories. The documentary premiered at ASU in December 2017. Click here to see the trailer.
