In 1968, nine Catholic peace activists protested the Vietnam War in a fiery blaze in Catonsville, Maryland. “Activism and Art: the Catonsville Nine, 50 Years Later” examines one of the most iconic and written-about acts of political protest in 20th century American history. Through art created by Catonsville Nine activist Tom Lewis and elements of the documentary “Hit & Stay: a history of faith and resistance,” this exhibit explores the motivations and considers the consequences of civil disobedience, and contextualizes this protest in our present turbulent political climate.
