|Title:||In Dialogue: Smithsonian Objects and Social Justice|
Discover what a historical voting machine and the story of a civil rights activist tell us about the present.
Heighten your civic awareness through conversations about art, history, and material culture. Each month, educators from the National Portrait Gallery will partner with colleagues from across the Smithsonian to discuss how historical objects from their respective collections speak to today’s social justice issues.
How can we build a civically engaged society? Together with our co-hosts from the National Museum of American History, we will explore this key question in relationship to an 1898 voting machine and a portrait of civil rights activist Robert P. Moses.
