Bill of Rights exhibit comes to Ponca City Library

Team Radio Marketing Group - December 27, 2016 12:32 pm

 

The Ponca City Library is hosting a new pop-up exhibition from the National Archives, The Bill of Rights and You, commemorating the 225th anniversary of the ratification of this landmark document.

The Bill of Rights and You spotlights one of the most remarkable periods in American history, explores the origins of the first 10 amendments to the U.S. Constitution (collectively known as the Bill of Rights), illustrates how each amendment protects U.S. citizens, and looks at how Americans exercise the rights outlined in the amendments.

The Bill of Rights and You invites visitors to connect directly with the people, places, and events that mark this historic document’s evolution.  This exhibit runs through February 2017.   

The Bill of Rights and You is organized by the National Archives and Records Administration, and transported by the National Archives Traveling Exhibits Service (NATES). This exhibition was developed in collaboration with the National Archives’ National Outreach Initiative to commemorate the 225th Anniversary of the Bill of Rights. The exhibition is presented in part by AT&T, Seedlings Foundation, and the National Archives Foundation.

This exhibit is brought to the library in collaboration with the Oklahoma Humanities Council and the Federation of State Humanities Councils.
