Delve into the transformative world of sports and its societal implications with Alice Kamps, an esteemed Curator at the National Archives. She will shed light on their latest exhibition, “All American: The Power of Sports”, which magnifies the unifying force of sports. The exhibition celebrates not just the unity and values sports bring to our communities, but also the power it bestows upon athletes—the power to shatter societal norms and voice out against injustices.
The exhibit brims with intriguing highlights: From the treasured sports equipment and jerseys that star athletes presented to Presidents to the fascinating early 20th-century tobacco baseball cards. Moreover, it showcases trophies, rarely seen pictures, film footages, and much more.
