Inspired by the autonomy of the Black 19th century historic Weeksville community and the resilience of the 1960s activists and local historians who rediscovered it, Weeksville Heritage Center's The Legacy Project invites its local community to join in the heralding of our legacy together. By exploring Weeksville's history and examining the components of The Legacy Project, this session invites attendees to discuss how institutions can transform and heal marginalized communities through archival-based programming.
