Throughout history, the desire for justice and human rights has motivated people who felt themselves oppressed to seek political change that promised a better future. Colonial Williamsburg and the Chautauqua Institution present Turning Worlds Upside Down: Liberty and Democracy in Revolutionary Times, an exploration of revolutions past and present.
A series of presentations and historical reenactments will explore how the ideals expressed in the Declaration of Independence were challenged as the American Revolution evolved into the War for Independence, and how present day revolutions confront those same challenges.
Join the conversation as distinguished historians and journalists examine the conflicts between revolutionary ideals and the day-to-day realities of self-governance in periods of social and political upheaval.
