As a companion event to launch the Bush Center’s 2023 Freedom Matters special exhibit, noted business leader and philanthropist David Rubenstein will discuss the significant historical artifacts featured in the exhibit, including all four U.S. Founding Documents: The Declaration of Independence, U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights, and The Federalist (Papers); a rare copy of the Magna Carta from 1302; and the Civil and Voting Rights Acts of 1964 and 1965. The moderated conversation will also touch on the role of “extraordinary ordinary people” in crafting these documents, the importance of freedom and liberty in building peaceful, stable democratic societies in the U.S. and the modern world, and much more.
