Choosing to Participate
August 28, 2013- August 10, 2014
The Florida Historic Capitol Museum
The Florida Historic Capitol Museum welcomes a new temporary exhibition to be on display August 27th, 2013 through August 10th, 2014. The exhibit, Choosing To Participate, highlights stories of community activists whose local impact has lead to larger national awareness about the importance of equality in civic communities.
Choosing To Participate was developed through the partnership of Facing History and Ourselves and the Smithsonian Institute Travel Exhibition Service. The exhibit features 11 posters that explore the impact civic engagement and illustrate the power individuals can have in enacting wider social change through four key points of individual action: Choose Dialogue, Choose Respect, Choose Engagement, and Choose to Participate.
The exhibit will also feature several other civic organizations in the State of Florida that focus on civic education and providing students with opportunities to be active participants in the civic communities of Florida.
