Voices and Votes: Democracy in America
June 12 - July 24
When American revolutionaries waged a war for independence they took a leap of faith that sent ripple effects across generations. They embraced a radical idea of establishing a government that entrusted the power of the nation not in a monarchy, but in its citizens. That great leap sparked questions that continue to impact Americans: who has the right to vote, what are the freedoms and responsibilities of citizens, and whose voices will be heard?
Voices and Votes is based on a major exhibition currently on display at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History. This Museum on Main Street adaptation will have many of the same dynamic features: historical and contemporary photos; educational and archival video; engaging multimedia interactives with short games and additional footage, photos, and information; and historical objects like campaign souvenirs, voter memorabilia, and protest material.
The exhibit opens to the public on June 12th in conjunction with the Kennard Alumni Associations “Juneteenth” Celebration!
Location: Kennard African American Cultural Heritage Center
Days & Times:
- Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays: 3pm to 7pm
