POP PosterMembers’ Curator Tour
Thursday, December 21 at 10 am
Free and exclusively for Members; RSVP to

Join us for a curator-led presentation on Power of Protest: The Movement to Free Soviet Jews, a pop-up exhibition which explores the significance of this risky, dramatic, and emotionally fraught social justice movement. December 2017 represents the 30th anniversary of the historic March on Washington in which American Jewish activists marched to show their support for Soviet Jews (refusniks) who were denied the rights to live freely, practice Judaism, or leave the country.

This small-scale, free-standing exhibition is designed to travel and will be at NMAJH for a limited time this winter.

Power of Protest is supported, in part, through a Museums for America grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, a government agency dedicated to advancing innovation, lifelong learning, and cultural and civic engagement.
