Exploris Hosts The Enemy Within: Terror In America, 1776 To Today

RALEIGH, N.C. – Bonnie Hancock, Exploris president, has announced that Exploris will be hosting the traveling exhibit, The Enemy Within: Terror in America, 1776 to Today, from August 26 through November 26.

This exhibit, which provides a historical perspective on contemporary issues regarding acts of terror that have taken place on American soil, was created by the International Spy Museum in Washington D.C., opened in May 2004, and began its tour around the United States in February 2006 in Oklahoma City. The exhibit reveals nine major events in United States history when Americans felt threatened by enemies within its borders.

“We at Exploris are honored to host this exhibit honoring our country’s history,” said Hancock. “Although tragedies like these are hard to relive, they also show us American’s resilience in the face of adversity.”
