February 11 – March 16, 2014
The Guantánamo Public Memory Project Exhibition
Minnesota History Center, 345 W. Kellogg Blvd., St. Paul, MN

Since 2012, students at 11 universities around the country, including the University of Minnesota, asked: what can Guantánamo's (GTMO) history tell us about what’s happening now - there, and here at home? They dug through historical and visual archives; talked to people who worked there, lived there, or were detained there; and explored how GTMO relates to issues, people, and places in their own communities. Each student team created a piece of the Project’s first traveling exhibit, sharing their discoveries and the difficult questions they struggled with.

The exhibit explores GTMO’s history from U.S. occupation in 1898 to today’s debates and visions for its future, from a wide variety of perspectives. It includes video testimonies and a "Shape the Debate" text-message voting activity.
