The Bill of Rights and You! A pop-up exhibit from the National Archives Traveling Exhibits Service

THE BILL OF RIGHTS AND YOU is now on view at the JF Kennedy Library.  This new pop-up exhibit from the National Archives commemorates the 225th anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights.  Explore the first ten amendments to the U.S. Constitution, collectively known as the Bill of Rights, and learn how Americans have exercised those rights.  The exhibit is presented in part by AT&T, Seedlings Foundation, and the National Archives Foundation. It is brought to you by the New Jersey Council for the Humanities and the Federation of State Humanities Councils.
