Stories to Tell: Curating an African American History Exhibit

Overview: Given that history is composed of many interwoven stories, how do curators and other historians decide which stories to tell? How can key historical events, people, places and themes best be represented in a meaningful, engaging exhibit to teach others? In this lesson, students consider the messages sent by artifacts and then develop an African-American history exhibit.
