At historical sites, the available historical evidence rarely tells the whole story. Longstanding systems of inequality and injustice have dismissed the experiences of racial and ethnic minorities, women and other marginalized groups to such an extent that often little evidence of their past lives exists today. How can Sites of Conscience and likeminded organizations navigate this difficult fact? How do we tell stories about the spaces and lives that have no verifiable, historical record connected to them?
Join us on October 19th, at 10:00am (E.T) for “Interpreting the Unknown: Being Adaptive as Places of Memory” as we offer strategies and insight into how Sites of Conscience can share histories even when they don’t have all the facts.
