Addressing Historical Truth in a Divided 21st Century Society

March 31, 2022 - 5:30 PM

Virtual Event.

Join Kelly Falcone-Hall, President & CEO Western Reserve Historical Society and Dennis Barrie, PhD WRHS Director of Experience Design in this provoking virtual discussion. Museums have a responsibility to provide accurate experiences that benefit society. We use collections to share stories about the American experience. Increasingly, many museum collections as seen through the lens of the 21st century are controversial, representing a shared history that is troubling, tragic and unresolved. An honest, open discussion about mission and museums’ collective responsibility to the truth, when so much of the American experience, as seen through our eyes, is on the “wrong side of history”.
