New humanitarian exhibit to open in December
The exhibits, Rightfully Hers, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, and Green Card Voices, focusing on first generation immigrants and refugees in Central Minnesota, will close Nov. 25, at the Stearns History Museum.
Rightfully Hers from the National Archives explores the history of the 19th Amendment, women’s voting rights before and after its ratification, and its impact today. The challenges of its passage reverberate to the ongoing fight for gender equity today.
Green Card Voices, provided by Unitecloud, highlights the stories of 18 first-generation immigrants and refugees from 12 different countries of origin who live, work, and serve in the area. The pop-up exhibit aspires us to build bridges between immigrants, nonimmigrants, and advocates.
The Stearns History Museum is open by appointment only from
10 a.m.-4 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday with extended hours on Thursday. Please call the Museum at (320) 253-8424 to schedule your time to visit.
Also, watch for upcoming exhibits, What We Fought For in December, and Why Old Places Matter in 2021.
