Mercury One recently hosted a launch party at Mercury Studios to announce its next special exhibition, “12 Score & 3 Years Ago: The Unfinished Promise of Unity.” This special exhibit, which will run from June 28th to July 7th at Mercury Studios in Irving, Texas, will offer an eye-opening exploration of slavery and freedom, and will equip visitors to become modern abolitionists and change-makers in their own communities.
At “12 Score & 3 Years Ago,” visitors will meet unsung African American heroes and be immersed in their stories and successes. “12 Score” — a follow up to last year’s “Rights and Responsibilities” pop-up museum — will also feature incredible artifacts like original documents from Abraham Lincoln, as well as priceless portraits, artwork, rare books, and more. A visit to “12 Score” will conclude with a moving look at slavery today, as over 40 million people remain locked in human trafficking around the world.
At the launch party for “12 Score,” Mercury One founder Glenn Beck kicked off the evening by describing to 150 guests how the event will take visitors on an immersive and interactive journey through a tumultuous era in history.
Beck, pulling from Lincoln’s opening of the Gettysburg Address, challenged the crowd to take an honest look at America today. “The question is: as a nation, are we getting better or worse?” said Beck. “We have to learn from our history so we can get better… The day we truly live up to the words of The Declaration of Independence, it’s time for a new mission statement. But that one is so hard to do that no man or society has ever come close. We need to strive for that.”
Beck also announced exciting, world-class partnerships for “12 Score” with The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, the Dallas-based African American Museum, the Frontiers of Flight Museum, the Dallas Historical Society, and the Old Red Museum of Dallas County History and Culture.
