Four Freedoms Revisited

Constructing Civically Engaged Arguments

Tuesday, March 28, 5:00-7:00pm ET

Weitzman National Museum of American Jewish History

101 S Independence Mall E

We invite 3rd -12th grade teachers and university faculty to explore the Weitzman National Museum of American Jewish History’s current exhibition The Future Will Follow The Past: An Exhibition by Jonathan Horowitz. The exhibition explores the transformative changes America has experienced since 2020, addressing antisemitism, racial violence, immigration, women’s rights, LGBTQ+ rights, and more. We will focus on one part of the exhibition which juxtaposes Norman Rockwell’s famous Four Freedoms with other works of art. Together these works ask the viewer to consider who does and does not have access to these freedoms. We will then offer a hands-on workshop introducing texts related to the Four Freedoms that express multiple perspectives, helping students to construct civically engaged arguments.
