Freedom Rising transcends partisanship and eloquently reminds all Americans of the constitutional values that unite us. Narrated by a live actor, it tells the story of the American quest for freedom through more than 200 years of constitutional history—and sets the stage for the exploration of America’s Founding Documents illuminated in the Centers’ exhibits, including The Story of We the People, and Constituting Liberty: From the Declaration to the Bill of Rights.
