The Smithsonian is the Nation's Attic as well as the Nation's Variety Show. With 19 museums, you never know what you'll find.

On February 5 at 12 EST, students across the country will join together for a virtual National Youth Summit on Freedom Summer and civic engagement. Civil rights activists, historians, and students will participate in a panel discussion about the 1964 youth-led effort to end the political disenfranchisement and educational inequality of African Americans in the Deep South, and discuss the role of young people in shaping America’s past and future. The webcast will be hosted from the Old Capitol Museum in Jackson, Mississippi; you can join the Summit through an online chat. Participating students will be encouraged to think of themselves as makers of history and asked to consider their ability to be active and engaged citizens.
