Opened to the public in June of this year, Power of Protest: Effecting Social Change, a new history exhibit at the Cayuga Museum of History and Art, addresses the history of protest through the lens of both national and local level movements. An accompanying film series, Change Makers Around the World, will expand that focus to look at international protests as well, inviting visitors to consider protest as a fundamental human experience. Join the Cayuga Museum for this unique chance to engage with the fundamental human right to resist, protest, and demonstrate. This program is a part of the Finger Lakes Film Trail. Change Makers Around the World will be presented in four, monthly documentaries from September to December. Each session will include a brief, moderated discussion following the film.
