The bound and printed version of Robert Shetterly’s travelling exhibition, Americans Who Tell the Truth, showcases a great many people whose words of truth have made a significant impact on our country and our culture. Featuring greats like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., alongside lesser known (but equally as important) activists, writers, artists, and other truth tellers of all kinds, this book can lead readers to deepen their understanding of the idea of truth and what it takes to make an impact. The book and its accompanying guide can be used to study themes relating to the observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. day this January.
A project focused on highlighting the importance of citizenship and community activism, Robert Shetterly’s “Americans Who Tell the Truth” presents meaningful learning opportunities for families. A constantly growing portrait series, Americans Who Tell the Truth showcases the important work of heroes- both well-known ones and those who are a bit more obscure. Explore the project to learn more about champions of social justice, the power of your voice, and the importance of dissent in democracy.
