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.
How to host an exhibit at YDL
YDL makes designated exhibit spaces available to the public for exhibits and displays when they are not in use by the library. Artists may submit an application to install an exhibition in the library’s space, subject to our Exhibits and Displays Policy. Individuals are limited to a single one-month exhibit per year, while educational institutions may post exhibits as often as there is space available. Please contact John Connaghan, firstname.lastname@example.org, with questions about exhibitions.
