Meeting Type: Program
Cost: Included with full conference registration.
This program will be a panel of short presentations focused upon the topics of race and region within the context of local history research, libraries/collections, and projects. How do race and region intersect--and diverge--in today's local history projects? What is needed for initial community buy-in and ongoing audience participation? How are the current social and political climates impacting local history work? After the speakers and questions/answers about their work, attendees will have an opportunity to share their own experiences and stories.
