From the Director

Erin Carlson MastDear Friends,
Our winter newsletter is the one we most look forward to creating for you each year. It marks the anniversary of our opening to the public on Presidents Day (four years ago in 2008), Abraham Lincoln’s birthday on February 12 (203 years ago in 1809), and gives us an opportunity to share our accomplishments from the past year as well as our plans for the coming year with all of you.

FULL LETTER

New Exhibit Opens Friday

2012 Exhibit Opening this Friday, February 17, this special exhibit will challenge perceptions of slavery in America today and raise awareness of a growing humanitarian crisis. By posing the question, “can you walk away?” this exhibit will inspire people to engage with the modern abolitionist movement and to see that slavery is an ongoing issue that requires big thinking and direct action, just as it did in Lincoln’s time.
