ON THE ROAD at San Antonio--Fighting For Democracy: Who is the "We" in "We, the People"?
July 29, 2008 - January 18, 2009
Through the diverse perspectives of seven ordinary citizens whose lives and communities were forever changed by World War II, this exhibition asks visitors to think critically about freedom, history, and, ultimately, the ongoing struggle to live democratically in a diverse America.
Fighting For Democracy: Who is the “We” in “We, the People”? is presented by the National Center for the Preservation of Democracy, an educational program of the Japanese American National Museum, to advance the understanding of, and commitment to, American democratic ideals. The Los Angeles exhibition opened in October, 2005, and was made possible with major support provided by the U.S. Army Center for Military History.
The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) Institute of Texan Cultures will be the first venue of a five-year, 10-city tour to premier the traveling exhibition from July 29, 2008 through January 18, 2009 in the Lower Gallery at UTSA's Institute of Texan Cultures. Admission will be free.
