History Café: Building Community Collections


Wednesday September 20


6:30 PM  –  8:00 PM

Primary documents and artifacts are the building blocks for constructing historical narratives. However, the collections that house them have gaps mirroring the biases of society and curatorial practices. Whose stories are deemed significant and why? How can these omissions be addressed? Join curators, collections managers, and researchers for a discussion on building equitable history from the stacks.

We are excited to present this event in partnership with the Black Heritage Society of Washington State. The History Café series is produced as a partnership between HistoryLink and MOHAI.

Detailed information on how to participate in-person will be provided via email following registration. Spots are limited so register early!
