Freedom in America Display @Swilley Library (Atlanta)

As we celebrate America's birthday, let's remember America's storied fight for freedom -- from the Revolutionary War to the Civil War; from the Underground Railroad heading north to freedom rides in the south; to today's fight for refugee, immigrant, gender, gay, and religious rights and freedoms.  Join Swilley Library for an evolving display on Freedom in America, now through Labor Day weekend. 

There will be changes to the display every few weeks.  Like us on Facebook page for updates.

 

Inspired? Want to write a paper or design a lesson plan around America's Fight for Freedom?  Ask a Librarian for help finding resources.

 

Learn more about about America's Fight for Freedom online at PBS:  Freedom: A History of US.
