Opened to the public in June of this year, Power of Protest: Effecting Social Change, a new history exhibit at the Cayuga Museum, addresses the history of protest through the lens of both national and local level movements. An accompanying film series, Change Makers Around the World, expands that focus to take a look at international protests as well, inviting visitors to consider protest as a fundamental human experience.
Change Makers Around the World will be presented in four, monthly documentaries from September to December. Each session will be hosted in the Carriage House Theater from 6:30-8:30PM, and will include a brief, moderated discussion following the film.
Admission for each session is free, though donations to the museum are welcomed.

“The Wall: A World Divided looks deep inside the revolution that swept across Europe two decades ago — with the November 1989 opening of the Berlin Wall — to understand how this remarkable event helped end the Cold War without a shot being fired.”

Tula Goenka, Professor of Television, Radio, and Film at Syracuse University and Co-Director of the Syracuse University Human Rights Film Festival, will moderate: discussing the role that protest and public demonstration played in ending the Cold War and how this impacts our modern world exactly 30 years later.
