President and Mrs. Bush to launch Freedom Collection
DALLAS—On Wednesday, March 28, the George W. Bush Presidential Center will host a special event to launch the Freedom Collection, a groundbreaking effort to document the struggle for human freedom and democracy around the world. President Bush and Mrs. Laura Bush will introduce the Freedom Collection, followed by remarks from Her Excellency Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, President of the Republic of Liberia (via video teleconference).
The Freedom Collection is a living repository containing inspirational stories from the most important freedom movements of the 20th century, told by the brave men and women who fought and continue to fight against repressive authoritarian regimes. It will use the power of video and the Internet to educate and inspire today’s freedom advocates. As part of the Bush Center’s Human Freedom Initiative, the Freedom Collection will also expand moral and practical support from the United States and other free societies for those still seeking liberty.
Here’s a short “making of” video whose full version will be part of the Freedom Collection:
