Voices and Votes: Democracy in America
Thursday, July 22
Dennos Museum Center, NMC, TC
When American revolutionaries waged a war for independence, 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 & responsibilities of citizens, & whose voices will be heard? This exhibit will be a springboard for discussions about those very questions & how they are reflected in local stories. Runs July 3 - Aug. 15. Open Weds. through Sun., 11am-4pm.
