Location: Paul Robeson Campus Center, Essex Room, Rutgers University-Newark
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.
