Voices and Votes: Democracy in America, a traveling Smithsonian Institution exhibition, is hosted by the Queen Anne’s County Historical Society at the Kennard African American Cultural Heritage Center in Centreville. The museum serves as the second venue of a five-stop tour of the state, presented through Maryland Humanities’ Museum on Main Street program. Each Voices and Votes site creates its own exhibit to complement the Smithsonian’s exhibition.
Voices and Votes: Democracy in America is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and State Humanities Councils nationwide. It is based on an exhibition by the National Museum of American History. Support for Museum on Main Street has been provided by the United States Congress.
Voices and Votes: Democracy in America is the seventh Museum on Main Street project brought to small communities throughout the state by Maryland Humanities. Each site hosts the exhibition for six weeks and develops a complementary exhibit highlighting their community’s heritage and histories.
Voices and Votes: Democracy in America programming is supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the State of Maryland, and Maryland Public Television is the tour’s Media Sponsor.
