How can historians and historical societies fulfill their social responsibility to tell more inclusive and accessible stories? And how can the public leverage their stake in this conversation to demand and support more equitable programming?
Join University of Connecticut historian, Dr. Fiona Vernal, as she explores models of engaged, public, oral, and community histories that reveal why Georgia featured so prominently in the Great Migration of African Americans to Connecticut, how West Indians became the largest foreign-born population in the state, and what happens when we tell the story of shade tobacco as an intersection of labor, identity, mobility, and migration.
Presented via Zoom, these programs provide opportunities to learn as well as to participate and share your own questions or stories.
