The Washington Foreign Press Center arranged for foreign media to visit the National Archives to cover the new ‘Records of Rights’ exhibit that provided a documentary history of how political and civil rights evolved in the U.S. from the Magna Carta to the Bill of Rights, the 14th and 19th Amendments, and the Americans with Disabilities Act.
