Virtual Behind-the-Scenes: Researching a New Tenement Family


When: Wednesday, February 21, 2024, 6:30PM - 7:30PM ET

Event Location: YouTube Live

Cost: Free; Suggested Donation

Join us for a special behind-the-scenes conversation on YouTube Live about the research for the Museum’s newest exhibit, A Union of Hope: 1869!

Where did we access 19th-century Black newspapers, and what did they reveal? What was our biggest discovery in the archives? How do historians fill the “gaps” in the archive, and read “between the lines” of white-authored sources when interpreting Black pasts? Marquis Taylor, Lead Researcher, will share highlights from his work over the last year, and discuss his process and principles for learning about the lives of Joseph and Rachel Moore and their community!

Let us know you plan to attend!
