The Long Walk to Freedom tells the untold stories of 28 ordinary people from diverse backgrounds who—through grassroots organizing—helped to change our nation
and gave birth to the civil rights movement. History comes alive as one generation of activists passes on the lessons of the 60s to a new generation of young people.
The exhibit, created by Community Works with over 200 students from New York City and San Francisco, features photographs, graphic timelines, archival materials, biographies, quotes and artwork. Through the unique lens of these young people the exhibit explores freedom, justice, and activism.

THE LONG WALK TO FREEDOM
IS A PROGRAM OF COMMUNITY WORKS
Founded in 1990 by Barbara Horowitz, Community Works, a
non-profit organization, uses the arts to forge links between diverse cultures and neighborhoods, improve educational attainment, foster strong communities, and extend the benefits of the arts to under-served individuals and communities, especially public school students. We seek to provide the tools for improving communication and understanding, to encourage social responsibility, a respect for diversity, and self-empowerment. Community Works provides innovative arts education programs for New York City public schools and communities. We serve more than 100,000 children in over 300 schools each year through our highly acclaimed performances, workshops, exhibits, mentoring and other model programs.
