  • Telling Untold Histories Unconference. May 11, 2017. "Every place, every person, and every object has a history, but not all histories are told." Telling Untold Histories – New Jersey’s annual unconference that looks for human stories yet to be told – explores these histories and asks why some stories remain untold. How can the community members who lived these histories shape how museums, historic sites, libraries, and schools tell them in the future? Because we value the knowledge you bring, this unconference puts you at the center. Participants create the program by suggesting and choosing sessions on the day of the unconference. Feel the suspense building! Workshops offer attendees the chance to learn new skills to help you tell stories. Discussions and activities connect you with new people and leave you inspired. Registration required.
  • "LGBTQ Veterans and Active Military Service: The Courage to Be..." 6:00-9:00 pm, Thursday, March 30, 2017 Ackerson Hall (Dean's Lounge), Rutgers University-Newark, 180 University Avenue.
