This spring, ten portraits from Rob Shetterly's remarkable collection, "Americans Who Tell the Truth," will be on display at Jane Addams Hull-House Museum. The Public Square celebrates its 10-year anniversary with a public performance of speeches and writings by these 10 truth-tellers, including Martin Luther King, Ella Baker, Pete Seeger, Grace Lee Boggs, and Bill Ayers. Their words are brought to life with dramatic readings performed by local artists, educators, and activists.

Recorded Thursday, May 19, 2011 at the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum.
