Changing America was created to commemorate The Emancipation Proclamation and the March on Washington, two pivotal achievements, on their 150th and 50th anniversaries. It explores their historical context, their accomplishments and limitations, and their impact on the generations that followed. This traveling exhibit is presented by the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture and the National Museum of American History in collaboration with the American Library Association Public Programs Office. The tour of the traveling exhibition is made possible by the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the human endeavor. This exhibition will travel to fifty venues across the nation, accompanied by public programming that will help audiences understand and discuss the relationship between these two great people's movements.
