The Center launched a new education program this year entitle "Trunk Show" - it's fascinating. Students (and adults) are encouraged to select a trunk and, when they open it, they learn about a specific historic figure and their life through artifact reproductions, personal effects/items, and photos. I picked a trunk with items that would've belonged to Sojourner Truth and learned about her life and role in hisotry. Here's a picture of Truth with President Lincoln . . .and here's a picture of me with her items from the trunk! Cool, huh?
