Americans Who Tell the Truth

In early 2012, The Kozmetsky Center at St. Edward’s University brings “Americans who tell the truth,” by artist and activist Robert Shetterly, to Austin as part of The Light/The Holocaust & Humanity Project. This collection of portraits is intended to remind people of the dignity, courage and importance of some of America’s truth tellers, our own obligations as citizens, and that the struggle for equality and freedom is on-going. Whether or not you agree with a particular subject’s point of view, each is an attempt to create dialogue that will help us figure out which truths we value most as citizens in a democracy.
