This project investigates the legacy of the momentous period of conflict and change in the United States during the 1950’s and 60’s.  Sligh wrote to people around the country, asking them to "be a witness" to those times by sending a story, a poem, or an incident from their lives.  Over a hundred people responded, and their perspectives became part of the growing multimedia collection. Witness to Dissent showed as a site-specific installation at the Washington Project for the Arts (WPA) in 1991 and Art in General in 1992.
