Taking Action Tour
This tour with interactive dialogue of the Pearl S. Buck House museum, developed in collaboration with the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience, shares the story of Pearl S. Buck’s forward-thinking human rights advocacy for issues that remain relevant today. Pearl S. Buck, winner of the Pulitzer and Nobel Prizes, used her fame to shed light on the rights of marginalized communities including people of color, people with disabilities, women, biracial children, and immigrants. Beyond using her writing to bring attention to these social justice issues, she took action to help those affected.
This tour engages visitors in conversations about subjects important to Ms. Buck. It inspires them to reflect on their own values and to take action to make the world a “good and peaceful place,” as Pearl S. Buck said and did.
If you are looking for an enlightening and uplifting experience that will inspire you to embrace Pearl S. Buck’s principles and practice, this tour is for you.
