Sisters of Freedom: African American Women Moving Us Forward

An engaging and inspirational exhibit that provides a dramatic glimpse of the power and passion of 41 African American women who have transformed their lives, their culture and their country. From activists to performers and teachers to preachers, they represent some of the most indomitable figures from the 1800’s to the present. The exhibit is appropriate for ages 12+ and its accessibility makes it usable by a broad range of organizations and institutions including schools, community centers, museums, faith groups, universities and unions. “Sisters of Freedom” consists of six 4'x8' panels that accordion fold so they free stand. Lightweight and portable, it displays on six 6’ tables and can be set up in 30 minutes. Available now for sale or rental.
