The national Changing America exhibit opens at the ND Heritage Center & State Museum on May 1! One hundred years separate the Emancipation Proclamation and the March on Washington, yet they are profoundly linked together in a larger story of liberty and the American experience. Changing America was created as a traveling exhibit to commemorate these two pivotal achievements on their 150th and 50th anniversaries. Watch for ND Heritage Centerís upcoming programming to explore how the historical content of these events and their impact relate to North Dakota.
