This exhibit is an attempt to reveal the human story behind the historical account of what happened. Through 30 panels of historical photographs of people, artifacts, and artwork, accompanied by text, Spots of Light explores the unique experiences and voices of women, as mothers, wives, friends, caregivers, resistance fighters, and more.
