Making History Our-Story: An On-going Cultural Case Study from an Open-Air Museum – Virtual Program at Central Library
March 9, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Virginia Outdoors Foundation owns and operates a 2,350 acre preserve that sits just 35 miles outside of our nation’s capital. Before becoming a state-designated Natural Area Preserve and being managed as an open-air museum and living laboratory, this mountainous landholding was home to many marginalized peoples. Summers Cleary and Barinaale Dube will be sharing the work Virginia Outdoors Foundation is embarking upon to present an inclusive and equitable history of the Preserve’s diversely peopled past, sharing efforts to cultivate diversity through the Preserve’s fellowship program.
