In this exhibit, there will be a program that can guide and inspire visitors and students to think and discuss civic engagement, the democratic process, and activism. The program is provided by The Nabb Center in collaboration with Public Affairs and Civic Engagement (PACE) and the Lower Eastern Shore Heritage Area (LESHA).
