Join us and read up on the latest in African American history, LGBTQ+ history, disability history and more.

This workshop is geared toward participants who want to learn more about recent trends in history and public history on topics ranging from LGBTQ+ history to disability history. We will also discuss how to create welcoming environments at historic sites or wherever you preserve history for visitors, volunteers, and employees who identify as members of one or more of those groups. Workshop will be discussion-intensive and include up-to-date readings on the topics at hand.
