"I Have No Right To Be Silent", The Human Rights Legacy of the Rabbi Marshall T. Meyer
Rabbi Marshall Meyer was an ordinary man whose extraordinary convictions, faith and impetuous personality impelled him to become one of the most important human rights activists during Argentina's Dirty War (1976-1983). Marshall is remembered for what he did, namely his human rights work and social justice activism. But his legacy is made that much greater by his ability to articulate why we are all responsible for speaking out against injustice. This exhibit is not only a commemoration of the social activism and human rights work of Rabbi Marshall Meyer, but it also explores the making of an activist.
This traveling exhibit consists of 12 beautiful banners whose text and imagery draws on the rich and powerful collection of documents contained in the Marshall T. Meyer papers including intimate family photos, moving letters from prisoners, internal government memos and rare human rights publications.
The exhibit is funded by the generosity of an anonymous donor and is a co-project of the Duke Human Rights Archive, The Duke Human Rights Center and the Duke Center for Jewish Studies.
