The Power of Children

How Three Children Overcame Hate and Changed Our Society

January 28-March 16, 2019 at YDL-Whittaker

This winter, the Ypsilanti District Library is featuring The Power of Children, an exhibit dedicated to three children who changed history. The exhibit profiles Ruby Bridges, Anne Frank, and Ryan White, three young people who became the faces of some of the most intense struggles of the twentieth century and whose lives and stories continue to teach and inspire us.

Visitors be transported into the different worlds that these children endured: the Holocaust in 1940s, the Jim Crow south in the 1960s, and the AIDS epidemic of the 1980s. This exhibit includes intense themes and is recommended for adults and for children ages 8 and older.
