Radical Roots of Public History: Social Justice Activism within the Historical Landscape

Historic sites, museums, archives, and monuments are neither neutral nor objective. Many were established to strengthen tradition, reinforce the cultural authority of elites, and inhibit change. Today, these sites have become the focal point of protest, symbols in a larger fight for inclusiveness and equality.

NJ historians, take note: This formerly-NJ resource can now be found in Delaware. 

Thank you, Alex Magoun (now Outreach Historian, IEEE History Center, Stevens Institute of Technology), for your long, lively, ever-helpful curatorship of the collection while it was still at RCA in Princeton.
