The National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, TN will be showcasing the Freedom’s Sisters Exhibition from January 24-April 5, 2009.
The Freedom’s Sisters Exhibition displays 20 African American women who have fought for equality and justice. Included in the exhibit are historical figures such as Harriet Tubman, Coretta Scott King, Fannie Lou Hamer and a host of other great women of color.
The traveling exhibit will also tour six other selected cities after its run at the NCRM of Memphis.
The women chronicled in Freedom’s Sisters are women who fought for freedom and equality. These women are part of our history, our present living and our future. These women were not afraid to dream, they lived life not only for themselves, but for the hope of a brighter future.
