Join us in a cross-curricular exploration of the primary source materials about nuclear weapons and the atomic bombing in Hiroshima, Japan through the lens of the “Voyage of the Phoenix. (1954-1958)” The voyage was initiated by the Reynolds family and several Hiroshima atomic bomb survivors: together they traveled 54,000 nautical miles stopping at over 120 ports sharing their experiences and ideas regarding the nuclear weapons with those they met. Primary source materials provided by the Peace Resource Center at Wilmington College and other resources will showcase this historic voyage and feature the movement people and ideas around the globe regarding the nuclear devastation of Hiroshima as well as the early nuclear disarmament movement.
