Red Carpet Movie Event - Walesa: Man of Hope
Price: $30 for members, $50 general public
5:30 -7:00 p.m. - Red Carpet Reception
The reception will include food, a cash bar and the opening of the two Photographic Exhibits on Nelson Mandela:
“Hold those things that tell your history and protect them. During slavery, who was able to read or write or keep anything? The ability to have somebody to tell your story to is so important. It says: 'I was here. I may be sold tomorrow. But you know I was here.'”
Those words, spoken by Maya Angelou, help inform the everyday activities here at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. Those words take on a greater significance today with news of the passing of this extraordinary writer and poet.
