Endowment for National Underground Railroad Freedom Center's Exhibits and Educational Programs

Endowment for core programs: exhibits, educational workshops, distance learning, and tours.

The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center seeks to create an endowment to enhance its humanities activities, in order to ensure its research and programming in its core area of demonstrating the significance of "freedom" as it relates to United States history, its culture, and its institutions. Although the Freedom Center focuses on slavery and abolitionists and the dilemma of abridging freedom that is guaranteed by the country's constitution -- it demonstrates the current relevance. Specificially, the NEH We the People Challenge grant will: expand the Freedom Center's self-guided and docent led tour program by developing new tours complementing the Freedom Center's exhibits; broaden its educational program by offering lectures and engaging in collaborative humanities projects; enhance its Distance Learning initiative by extending its educational activities beyond the museum's walls; augment its exhibits by creating changing exhibits and attracting traveling exhibits.
