Whose Stories Get Told? A discussion about representation in museums

Public historians Bob Forrant and Kevin Coffee, in conversation with lala's Laura Lamarre Anderson, will discuss the role of museums in telling our history. Through the years, evolving philosophies have guided acquisition and display policies, often resulting in one-sided views and the silencing of many voices.

All three worked on the new Lowell National Historic Park exhibit, One City, Many Cultures, and will discuss their own work in light of this public exhibit.
