Bush Institute to Unveil Freedom Collection

Former U.S. President George W. Bush addresses the audience during the George W. Bush Presidential Center groundbreaking ceremony on November 16, 2010 in Dallas, Texas.

The George W. Bush Institute is set to launch online its collection of video interviews and documents that tell the stories of those who have participated in freedom movements around the world.

Former President Bush and former first lady Laura Bush will introduce the institute's online freedom collection at an event Wednesday evening that will include remarks by Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf via video teleconference.

The collection is an archive of interviews with those who have fought against oppressive regimes and documents related to that struggle.

In addition to being online, the collection also will have a physical home at the institute, which is part of the George W. Bush Presidential Center being built on the Southern Methodist University campus in Dallas.
