ALA Traveling Exhibition: Changing America
Due: October 21, 2013

The American Library Association (ALA) Public Programs Office, in collaboration with the National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) and the National Museum of American History, invites applications from public, academic, and special libraries; small museums; and historical societies for the traveling exhibition CHANGING AMERICA: THE EMANCIPATION PROCLAMATION, 1863 AND THE MARCH ON WASHINGTON, 1963. The traveling exhibition tour is made possible by the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the human endeavor (NEH).

Changing America will help public audiences understand and discuss the relationship between two great peoples' movements that resulted in the Emancipation Proclamation, and the March on Washington in 1963. Participants selected will be required to present an opening event and at least two public humanities programs for adult audiences related to exhibition themes and presented by qualified humanities scholars.

Fifty sites will be selected to present the exhibition in their communities for a period of six weeks. All sites selected for the project will receive a grant of $1,700 from the ALA, with funding provided by NEH, for expenses related to public programs. A planning webinar/workshop and online program resources will be available for all selected sites. The tour and programs will begin in January 2014 and continue through December 2017. For more information and to apply, visit the Changing America website.
