This annual event is inspired by the original 1969 Freedom Seder, where hundreds of people of all backgrounds gathered to explore and celebrate freedom in the context of the Civil Rights Movement on the third night of Passover and the one-year anniversary of Dr. King’s assassination.

Typically an in-person event at the Museum on Independence Mall for 300 participants of all faiths, races, and beliefs, the tradition continues virtually in 2021 with the re-airing of a beautiful selection of stories and performances presented at this signature NMAJH event since its inception in 2013, interspersed with live commentary. Each story offers a unique perspective on the meaning of freedom in America today.
