The Voyage of the Phoenix


 

Exhibit Highlights Family's Efforts to Promote Peace and Equality

The first “Voyage of the Phoenix” is the story of how one family on a carefree pleasure cruise became socially conscious activists. Created by Wilmington College Students, the exhibit is a story of transformation. During their trip around the world the Reynolds family became aware and opposed to racial inequality, global inequality, and nuclear testing. Barbara Reynolds eventually founded the Peace Resource Center at Wilmington College. This is an exhibit you’ll want to see and remember.

The Voyage of the Phoenix is on exhibit now in the central exhibit space at the Museum.

The exhibit focuses on the 1958 peaceful protest by the family sailing into the Pacific nuclear testing zone to protest the use of nuclear weapons and the unknown dangers of radiation on people and the environment. The exhibit features original artifacts, photographs, and manuscripts from the trip.

 


The Ship

The Phoenix of Hiroshima was a 50-foot, 30-ton yacht that circumnavigated the globe and was later involved in several famous protest voyages. Between its launch in 1954 and its sinking in 2010, the Phoenix carried a family around the world, was used to make protest voyages against nuclear weapons, was declared a Japanese national shrine, and ended up offered free on Craigslist, gutted and stripped of masts, phoenix figurehead and every identifying mark but the words "Phoenix of Hiroshima."

Teens Inventing Peaceful Solutions (TIPS)

A new season of TIPS is well under way at the Dayton International Peace Museum.  The number of students has doubled since last Spring's inaugural debut of the group with students from over ten Dayton area middle and high schools.

The group meets on Saturday afternoons at the Museum and ends every session with a 'family style' feast of good food and conversation.  One of the major goals before breaking at Thanksgiving is to create individual projects revolving around social justice in their schools and communities. One project that is under way already is the support of the Native American Indians fighting to protect sacred land and water from oil pipelines construction in South Dakota.
