National Archives Museum

Thursday, February 23, 2023 - 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. EST

During this online workshop with Truman Presidential Library and Eisenhower Presidential Library, teachers will examine primary sources to discover how and why Presidents have issued executive orders to advance civil rights.

This program is a part of Civics for All of US,  the national civic education initiative from the National Archives. Our interactive teacher workshops draw upon the vast holdings of the National Archives to promote the knowledge, skills, and dispositions students need for civic engagement in the 21st century. Each program is led by one of our educators located at National Archives sites, the Center for Legislative Archives, and Presidential Libraries across the country. Visit for more information.
