Fighting for Democracy: Who is the "We" in "We, the People"?
August 10, 2019 - January 5, 2020

We, the people, shape democracy;
I, too, can shape democracy;
Those who have struggled for freedom and equality have extended democracy’s reach for all.

Fighting for Democracy: Who is the “We” in “We, the People”? is an experimental exhibition based on these fundamental principles. It features seven real people and traces their stories throughout the pre-war, World War II, and post-war periods as examples of the millions of Americans whose lives were affected by the war and how each sought equal rights for their families and communities.
