Creating Sacramento's Cultural Memory (One History Project at a Time)
Curated by Meg Birmingham
We’re much more likely to remember things that are important to us, things that we make note of. That’s why projects like Sacramento’s African American Experience Project are so important because projects like this start taking things from Communicative memory and insert them into Cultural memory.
“This grant-funded project calls for both detailed historical research collecting oral history and historical documents, and the production of a thematic historic context that documents the historical African American experience in Sacramento. Community involvement in the project is essential for ensuring accurate and complete documentation of Sacramento’s African American history.”
