MARIETTA - This fall the Marietta History Center will continue its series of traveling exhibits from Kennesaw State University’s Museum of History and Holocaust Education. The first temporary exhibit, in the series, generously funded by a 2021 grant from the Breman Foundation of Atlanta, is “Women's Voices for Civil Rights.” This eight-panel traveling exhibit celebrates women and girls who advocated for civil rights in the United States.
Featuring colorful illustrations by young female artists Scarlett Green and Julia Guevara, this exhibit is geared toward students as young as third grade. The exhibit includes profiles of civil rights advocates from the past, as well as more recent examples of activism, and it defines key vocabulary for students and teachers. We hope that visitors' face-to-face encounters with this history will inspire them to learn more about the past and its significance today. This first exhibit in the series will be on display at the MHC from Thursday, August 11th through Thursday, September 8th.
