Learn about democracy at CCBC

The Community College of Baltimore County is hosting an adaptation of the Smithsonian’s “Voices and Votes: Democracy in America” exhibition at The Gallery at CCBC Dundalk, College Community Center, 7200 Sollers Point Road until Jan. 22, and the college is reopening its gallery on Jan. 2.

Voices and Votes is based on a major exhibition currently on display at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, and CCBC was one of five selected by Maryland Humanities to host it.

This Museum on Main Street adaptation of the exhibition will have many of the same dynamic features: historical and contemporary photos; educational and archival video; engaging multimedia interactives with short games and additional footage, photos, and information; and historical objects like campaign souvenirs, voter memorabilia and protest material.
