NEH on the Road: For All the World to See

Oregon Historical Society will present a series of public programs to accompany the NEH On the Road Exhibit "For All the World to See". We will explore the concept of civil rights in Oregon through activities that reach out to diverse segments of the public. In association with the exhibit, we will organize a viewing of Dr. Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech and facilitate a discussion about the speech, its effect, and how it is perceived today. We will also organize a Community Day open to adults and children alike that will invite further meaningful engagement with the exhibit, and a panel discussion will highlight civil rights milestones in Oregon. Visitors will also have opportunities to share their own experiences, stories, and perceptions about what civil rights mean to them. These public programs will educate the public about the ways Oregonians have worked to secure civil rights and place this in the wider context of America's history.
