Exhibitions

THE JOHN CARTER BROWN LIBRARY staff and invited curators prepare public exhibitions of material selected from the collections.

The Library’s newest exhibition, "The Other Revolution: Haiti, 1789-1804," illuminates Haiti and its revolution. The Haitian Revolution is the least understood of the three great democratic revolutions that transformed the Atlantic world in the late eighteenth century. This exhibition--for the first time the books included in the exhibition may be read in their entirety online--provides a running narrative of the Haitian Revolution. Visit this exhibition in the Reading Room from January 2014 to May 2014.

Recent exhibitions may also be visited virtually. The online version serves as a record of an exhibition and ensures that our audience will be able to view the treasures of the John Carter Brown Library from any place on earth with internet access.
