'Freedom's Sisters'

Freedoms Sisters was produced by the Cincinnati Museum center. It was prepared for travel by the Smithsonian Institution. The exhibit is on a national tour sponsored by the Ford Motor Company fund.

The exhibit consists of 20 displays depicting the lives of African American Women who made a mark in the fight for freedom. They include well known freedom fighters like Coretta Scott King, Merlie Evers Williams, Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman and Shirley Chisholm. And they include some less known freedom fighters such as Mary Church Terrell, Constance Baker Motley, Sonia Sanchez and Frances Watkins Harper. The first fighter in the series is Ella Jo Baker, who helped to build the NAACP. The last is Ida B. Wells-Barnett who published ‘Southern Horrors: Lynch law in All its Phases.” All of the ladies represented have brought a lot of hard work to the struggle for equality.

The exhibit closed July 5th, 2009.
