Presenter

This spring, ten portraits from Rob Shetterly's remarkable collection, "Americans Who Tell the Truth" will be on display at the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum. The Public Square will celebrate its ten year anniversary with a public performance of speeches and writings by these ten truth-tellers, including Martin Luther King, Ella Baker, Pete Seeger, Grace Lee Boggs, and Bill Ayers. Their words will be brought to life with dramatic readings performed by local artists, educators, and activists.
