Guantánamo Public Memory Project Exhibit on Capitol Hill


June 23, 2014

Since 2012, students from 15 universities and hundreds who served, lived, and were held at GTMO have worked together to unearth its hidden histories.

The result is the Guantánamo Public Memory Project, a traveling exhibit of surprising stories, images, and documents – from before 9-11 and after – with dialogues from Phoenix to Pensacola on why GTMO's past matters today.

Meet some of the exhibit's creators and hear their stories of GTMO. Then add your voice to the national dialogue.  


        The Honorable Keith Ellison

        The Honorable Jerrold Nadler
