Competition inspires students to explore history through art

Every year for 50 years, some 500,000 students from across the country have competed in National History Day, using arts to portray their researched stories. Jeffrey Brown spent a day with the finalists to see how they defined turning points in history. It’s part of our series, Art in Action, exploring the intersection of art and democracy and for our ongoing arts and culture coverage, CANVAS.
