For the Love of Freedom

An Inspirational Sampling

Closed October 8, 2020

In 2020, against the background of the nation's intersecting viral and racial crises, the museum created an outdoor display centered on the rights granted by the First Amendment. The project's centerpiece was a set of banners featuring civil rights activist Fannie Lou Hamer, complemented by a number of other inspirational civil rights-related quotes on the museum grounds. The content of the display, as well as related objects in the museum's collection, can be enjoyed on the companion website.
